ZTE Mimosa with Windows Phone Tango to be launched in May, should be as cheap as Nokia’s Lumia 610
ZTE announced quite a few new smartphones last month, including the Mimosa X, a dual-core handset that comes with Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich. We’ve already reported that the Chinese company is working on a Windows Phone version of the Mimosa. Now we have more details on this new device.
WPDang has it that the Windows Phone-based Mimosa will be released in China sometime in May. It will obviously run Windows Phone Tango, aka Windows Phone 7.5 Refresh. It’s said that the WP Mimosa will be directly competing with the Nokia Lumia 610 price-wise, so it should cost about $200 – $250. The new Mimosa may have an 800MHz processor, and 256MB of RAM. Unfortunately, we still don’t have any image of the device.
ZTE has already announced two Windows Phone handsets – the 4.3 inch ZTE Tania (available since last year), and the 4.0 inch ZTE Orbit (pictured above), which should hit the market starting the next few months.
Windows Phone Tango / Refresh will be officially introduced in China on March 21. The first smartphone to run the new OS – the HTC Triumph – is already avaialable there, as of last week.
