MWC 2012: ZTE Orbit makes debut at Mobile World Congress

ZTE is using this year's Mobile World Congress to debut its second Windows smartphone, the ZTE Orbit.

The phone will be launched in the UK in the second quarter of 2012. Pricing has yet to be confirmed.

It comes hot on the heels of ZTE's first Windows Phone, the ZTE Tania, announced in January this year, which will launch in April and retail for as little as £10 per month.

The ZTE Orbit is based on the latest version of Windows Phone and comes with 4GB of memory, HD Voice, and a five-megapixel camera with auto-focus and LED flash.

He Shiyou, executive VP and head of the terminal division of ZTE said: ‘The Windows Phone platform is as powerful as it is intuitive, enabling us to create and deliver exciting new devices that meet real consumer demand.

‘Our partnership with Microsoft is a key component of our strategy to grow our share of the smartphone market. ZTE is proud to be at the forefront of device manufacturers who are using the Windows Phone platform.’

Mark Linton, senior director of Microsoft's OEM Division said: ‘Microsoft is excited to continue partnering with ZTE to bring new Windows Phones to market. We look forward to the availability of ZTE Orbit in major markets around the world in the second quarter of 2012.’
