Like Samsung and Sony Ericsson (among others), ZTE is also announcing new products at MWC 2010. The Chinese company has just unveiled the ZTE Bingo, presented as “the world’s first ultra-slim big-screen BMP 3G smartphone” – where BMP means Qualcomm’s Brew Mobile Platform.
The ZTE Bingo features HSDPA 7.2Mbps, A-GPS, accelerometer, 5MP camera, VGA front-facing camera, Google Maps, Facebook access, a 3.2 inch touchscreen display (of unknown resolution), and a “new dynamic UI” with support for multi-touch.
Since the Brew platform supports Adobe Flash and provides things like window management and advanced multimedia capabilities, the ZTE Bingo should include these things, too.
Unfortunately, photos of the ZTE Bingo are not yet available. Come to think of it, the Bingo might be the ZTE F350 recently spotted with Verizon’s logo on it (although I could be wrong, of course):
“With the development of the communication industry, smartphones will become more popular. Goldman Sachs analyst shows that smartphone sales will grow by 38% in 2010. In Europe and even worldwide, smartphones will become a very important development direction for ZTE in 2010,” declared Mr. Lin Qiang, President of ZTE’s Mobile Phone Operation Department in Europe.
Brew aside, ZTE has also announced that it would showcase 5 new Android phones at MWC (one of them will probably be launched in the US). We’ll bring more details (and photos, hopefully) soon.
