Nokia has got like 1000 models!! Obviously they are going to ship out that many units. Poor apple has only 2 at the moment(iphone 4 and 4s)...and they are still doing pretty good

i dont wanna hurt anybody but one thing i have to say that ZTE is a not only a mobile phone manufacturer ,it has other business like tele communication infrastructural if anybody never hard this company name thats not a prob.basically ZTE makes mobilephone for low end users so if your are a high end cellphone user its ok that u never saw this brand in ur own eyes.(lol)

Will , I live in china and let me say ZTE is doing great over here ...

I saw many people using ZTE Blade in china , it is handy and cheap , not to mention many ZTE mobile is really cheap comparing them to HTC , Samsung , LG...etc.

ZTE is making new mobile for orange called Monte Carlo , handy specs and some shops in china selling it for 200USD.

Hope that ZTE become not only in for domestic Chinese (or some other not developed countries) market but become well know brand globally.

chinese people work in beijing or even here in bucharest illegal for a few bucks per month. practically they work in the best conditions of rentability: they pretend only food, a place to sleep and wash. they are leaving their country , most of them rednecks countrymans with 30 brothers in family, only to find a place to eat,dress,wash. they are so many and so ready to work for nothing.this will destroy work markets in every country where they are because no other people will accept such working condition. here in bucharest are thousands of illegal chinese working in the worsest conditions in contruction. this will happen soon everywhere

Think of the chinese massive population, it's nothing special. Especially, chinese gov tries whatever to protect their own company's ass...

remember china is still a communist nation, not a capitalist...they haven't recognised the private property such long period time.

Its a Chinese domestic product not really meant for exports. Since there are 1.3 billion chinese living in China if only 10% of all the chinese buy a ZTE, this brand will become world no1 with 130 mln sales compared to nokias 100 mln sales, without any of us ever seeing one in our shops. Its called logic, you have a brain, use it!
