ZTE Still Eager to Enter US Market; Raises a Few Concerns

Back in January when we previewed the ZTE Tania at CES, the company was eager to bring the phone into the US market by the end of this year. However, with Apollo fast approaching with announcements expected in June, it doesn’t make sense for the company to launch a low-end handset that will essentially be obsolete the moment it hits shelves.

The Tania only sports a 4.3″ screen, 1GHz processor, 5MP camera and a crippling 4GB of storage. That’s great for the low end markets in Asia, but here the phone would easily be scoffed at when the flagship Lumia 900 is going for the measly price of $50 these days.

While ZTE still seems eager to jump into the US market, the only model that seems fit for the Tania is a pay-as-you-go model that doesn’t have a subsidized contract associated with it. If ZTE is serious about the US market, then a phone with better specs will need to be their entry point as it now has the Samsung Focus 2 and the Lumia 900 to compete with at budget prices.
