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.

Three WiFi Hub ZTE MF10 Review

Amazon, Samsung, HTC… who’ll be webOS’ new suitor?

HP's decision to amputate its webOS hardware line and attempt to tourniquet the cash gush has left the platform's future in the air.

Android legal losses reportedly prompt exodus to Windows Phone and MeeGo

HTC's recent legal loss in the ITC Apple patent case, along with Microsoft's aggressive patent push amid Android OEMs, has reportedly left manufacturers increasingly wary of Google's open-source OS.
