But because most people don't understand this problem, there are wars on every internet forum going on between OS X vs. Windows.
Remember people! OS X was build for specific type of hardware and Windows needs to support every chinese PCI card there is out there.

Regarding the phone, if it had the same cpu as Huawei Ideos X5 (which is the one Desire Z has) it'd be getting it in a heartbeat. But from what I've read from pdadb, it has the same cpu as Blade does, which is not even ARMv7. If that's true, I hope that's the last one ZTE makes with an older-gen cpu.

Copy of good design for less money is good thing and you put almost every little thing modern midle end - high end device has (5mpixel camera with flash and good procesor ,512 RAM memory) all that is great. Last the most important thing Sonyericsson (S.Korean), samsung(S.Korean), lg (S.Korean), htc(Taiwan) , Nokia (Finland) & Motorola (USA) the majority is from eastern Asia , and almost everything is made in China and other parts of Asia. There isn't any crap from ZTE and Huawei who are great companys from China.

I guess a lot of people think that more CPU means a better experience regardless of bloat-ware etc

Are Nokia idiots?

you have to know that majority of cellph0one are build in china, so it s not bad quality. the extra money you pay go in the pocket of unscrupulous managers. so why pay 500 euro when you can get the same for 200 euro or less.
if you look at the blade, the phone has 9/10 rate except for this camera.
get this phone and you wont regret it.
i hope a new blade will come out soon.

As for somebody said "i think they copied the design between HTC overall and dell buttons lol" well everybody copies everything and when they are copying a good thing it's really good for us customers. ;)

So it is better in more ways then one , it is similar to htc & dell and it is cheaper then both of them :) I guess all of them should lower their price tags of their phones.

Looks nice. I'm not willing to pay out $600-700 for one of the higher end ones!
