ZTE Tania Preview

ZTE Tania Preview

ZTE isn't a name most smartphone shoppers would recognize, but the company has ambitions to change all that with the ZTE Tania. A 4.3-inch Windows Phone 7 device, the Tania aims to deliver not only all that Microsoft OS goodness you've come to love, but at a price that significantly undercuts rivals. The unit we've been using since last week is final hardware but non-final software, hence this being a preview and not a full review, but it's still enough to get an early take on what ZTE hopes will be a smartphone game-changer in more ways than one.

Sony VAIO Windows Phone tipped for mid-2014

Sony is considering launching at least one Windows Phone handset in 2014, sources claim, as Microsoft courts potential partners to bolster support for its "third platform" OS.
