ZTE’s Grand X Offers Android ICS and Tegra 2 Chip for £190


ZTE Grand X
The ZTE Grand X will be on sale from early August through Virgin Mobile and Phones 4u

ZTE has unveiled its new Grand X handset, which will come with a largely un-skinned version of the stock Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich operating system.

Touted as this year’s flagship phone for the budget Chinese brand, it runs a 1GHz Nvidia Tegra 2 dual-core processor and a 4.3-inch screen with 960 x 540 pixels and 16 million colours. Users will have access to the Tegra Gaming Zone to download games optimised for this chip.

The phone can be linked via Wi-Fi and DLNA to any compatible net-connected HDTV display.

It measures 127 x 64.6 x 9.9mm and weighs 110g. There’s a 5-megapixel camera with autofocus, flash and 720p HD video, plus a 0.3-megapixel front-facing one for video calling.

There’s also Dolby Mobile audio technology. Internal storage is just 4GB but it can be expanded by microSD card (the maximum card capacity it accepts is 32GB).

The Grand X will be available from early August exclusively through Phones 4u and Virgin Media stores. Virgin has already announced its pricing: free on contract from £24 per month (or £19 for existing customers). However, the PAYG price is looking more attractive at around £190.

at £19 per month, Virgin seem to be saying they don't want the business.

Virgin broadband customers can get a rolling monthly SIM with 500MB, 125 minutes (plus 'unlimited' Virgin minutes) and 'unlimited' texts for £7 per month. So to make sense, the £19 per month contract would need to run for no more than 16 months, which seems unlikely, or else it needs to offer a far more generous airtime and data package.
