ZTE Tania is one of a new generation of low-end Windows Phones, but unlike some like the Acer W4 this one actually looks pretty good, and should not embarrass anyone if they pulled one out of their pocket.
The main compromise with the ZTE Tania is of course that 4GB storage, but the handset is apparently aimed at users upgrading from feature phones, so it may not be that much of an issue. The large 4.3 inch screen has good colour reproduction, if not the best viewing angles, and at only 10.5 mm thick the device is not too bulky. It is available in both black and white, and is currently being distributed by SFR France. It is expected to come to UK soon however unlocked for around Â£250, which is pretty low for a smartphone.
If Microsoft can create enough buzz around the OS the handset may be a good choice for those attracted to the higher-end devices but unable to afford them.
