ZTE to reveal new Windows Phone device next week

Next week we can expect to get a ton of new smartphone announcements including some new Windows Phone reveals from companies like Nokia and LG. Today, China-based company ZTE annouced today they would be joining the party at the Mobile World Congress Trade show next week with a number of new product reveals, including at least one that will use the Windows Phone OS.

ZTE had already announced plans to release a new Windows Phone product, the Tania, back in September that would support the then newly launched Windows Phone 7.5, or "Mango" update. It's possible that the new Windows Phone product ZTE plans to reveal next week will be based on the next major Windows Phone update, code named "Tango".

The company also revealed today that it would be announcing a whopping eight new smartphones that will have Google's Android operating system. At least one of them will be, according to the press release, a "major new quad-core flagship handset." A number of the Android-based smartphones will have support for the 4G LTE wireless networks.

ZTE should reveal a lot more details on Monday as the WMC show gets underway in Barcelona, Spain. Naturally we will keep you up to date on any major news that will come from the show.

The phones don't really add anything special for people living in the US. Or more correctly I should say, "Tango" doesn't.

He means it doesn'tboffer much more for the western consumer that Mango can't provide, but you were too busy going for the troll...

Probably US as well, ZTE supplies low cost phones to many non-contract and pre-paid services.

Cricket for example sells ZTE Android phones.
