ZTE has announced that its Tania Windows Phone handset is headed on a journey to Europe. The handset packs in a 4.3-inch 800 x 480 display, 5 MP camera, and a fairly slim 10.5 mm form factor. Behind the scenes is 512MB of RAM, 4GB of internal storage, and a single-core 1GHz processor. It runs the fruitful Mango, Microsoft’s latest and greatest version of Windows Phone.
Back in March, the Chinese vendor originally decided it would not ship any Windows Phone devices, citing low demand for the operating system as the main cause. Just last month, ZTE went back on its word and unveiled the Tania. Overall, mid-range probably best describes this device, and I say that mainly because of its comparably slow processing speed and lack of a front-facing camera. It does have a sleek design though. Lately, white has been the new black, and the dots on the back give the Tania a unique touch of style.
ZTE faces some hardships ahead, however. Nokia recently unveiled its first Windows Phones: the Lumia 800 and Lumia 710. They’ve received warm reception so far, and since both are missing a front camera as well, they are put in a direct line of competition with the Tania.
The ZTE Tania has not received a release date just yet, but according to the company’s plans, it should be available in Europe within the fourth quarter of this year.
