ZTE Era Hands-on

Along with the rest of their 2012 rebirth announced earlier today via a torrent of Android smartphones, the ZTE Era stood out as a powerhouse to be reckoned with. We've gotten the chance to take a hands-on look at an early build of this device now, it and its giant AP30+1450 quad-core processor, Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich 4.0, and 4.3-inch TFT display at qHD 960 x 540 pixel resolution. This device is certainly ZTE's greatest effort yet.

This device is able to connect with GSM, EDGE, DPRS, WCDMA, and HSPA+, and is more than ready to take on the world market if and when all of these specifications come together in one grand device. On the back of the device you've for an 8 megapixel AF camera capable of 1080p video and the front you've got a VGA camera for video chat. This device also has HD Voice, DLNA, and MHL for HDMI output to your HDTV.

UPDATE: check out the video tour – and let your humble narrator know if you can find that fabulous wallpaper, too – dizzying!
