ZTE Kis landing on Virgin Media today for £49.99

ZTE's phones have proved popular at the lower end of the market, and the company is launching another handset in conjunction with Virgin Media in the UK. The ZTE Kis will be available for £49.99 on Pay As You Go, offering a 3.5-inch 480x320 screen, 800Mhz processor, 256MB of RAM, 512MB of storage with a microSD card slot, and a 3.2-megapixel camera with 2x digital zoom.

That's not bad at all for the price. It might be lacking on storage, but you'll get a free 2GB microSD card slot in the box, and the phone supports cards up to 32GB cards in size. The phone may be running Gingerbread, but you weren't really expecting Ice Cream Sandwich at this price point, were you? Connectivity includes Bluetooth 2.1, WiFi, GPS, and tri-band 3G. It's not too thick or heavy at 11.5mm and 120g, and a 1,400mAh battery should keep you going for a full day.

Virgin Media will be offering the ZTE Kis starting from today. You should be able to pick on up either on Virgin's website, or by giving them a call and ordering one directly. Virgin will be throwing in 1GB of data per month over 12 months for free as well, which should come with the mandatory £10 top-up that you purchase with the handset.
