The longer they wait the less desirable this phone becomes to me. One month ago, when I first read about it, I just wanted it. Now I am not sure anymore because there are many other phones that get constantly cheaper. For example, with the new Samsung Galaxy SII being released I saw that the price of the current Galaxy i9000 is in free fall. Same with the ACE. Same with some HTC models like the Wildfire. One month in the future and ZTE Skate will not be able to stand against the other brands anymore. I think they are waiting too long with their release; also, the delay does not really give me confidence in the quality of the Skate.
New firmware is being released daily! Testing firmware on some ZTE Blades for compatibility between devices even! Device will be sluggish on the slower processor until or friends at MoDaCo get their mits on it and mod. Mid May/June launch date with Orange in UK.
Anonymous, 10 May 2011mid-julyno next year! already released in france. lets see for other countries
i think its gonna be released in june or july becuase the phone couldn't be released that way, as wee seen on the videos its too laggy and probably they try too fix that
Anonymous, 09 May 2011Does anyone have any release info? It's May, come on ZTE, release it already!mid-july
this would be a good upgrade to blade, but with only 800mhz single-core, no HD video and less goodies overall than other major-companies' products plus the expected worse software and upgrade and support: this phone would succee at max 200€,, blade was one of the top sellers mainly for it's price,,

Anonymous, 04 May 2011ive heard from a few reliable sources its gonna be around £150 in the uk.Lets hope so, if ZTE are smart then they will release this phone at a low price and it will probably shift as fast as the Blade did (San Francisco) what we dont want to see is another HTC, they release a good phone for cheap then the next ones at a premium.
ive heard from a few reliable sources its gonna be around £150 in the uk.
when this phone will be out, I need one for summer 2011, and this one has a LED flash which was missing on the blade of orange.
will it be distributed by orange Switzerland as well?how much, when?I hope it 's going to be same price as the blade, so around 100 british pounds. Thank you for any information you could provide.
