ZTE has officially launched their midend-ish smartphone, the Skate in an event earlier today. The Skate is a 4.3-inch smartphone with a resolution of 480 x 800 that packs a 1GHz Qualcomm processor. Granted thw specifications arent that great, its main appeal is its price – at Php 13,990, the price is hard to ignore. Unfortunately, the Skate runs on Android 2.3, with no clear upgrade path (ICS or otherwise) given during the presscon. Possibly the main draw for users to grab the Skate is the price – it’s very reasonably priced at Php13,990, which makes it one of the most affordable 4.3-inch smartphones out today. MSI-ECS is the exclusive distributor for ZTE mobile products.
