Through filing by the FCC, it appears that Sprint is set to launch a new phone to their Android lineup. The goes by the name of the ZTE N860 which is not the greatest of names but as with others will probably change once it get closer to actually being released to the public.
Specifications of the device are not known, the only reference available online are a photo or two showing what the mobile phone looks like. Based on the photo, it appears that the phone is on the medium scale in terms of features as the user interface appears detailed enough suggesting a lot of features are included on the phone.
The interesting thing about this release is that it marks the first time that a major national mobile carrier will carry an Android phone manufactured by ZTE. There has been a ZTE phone released in the past but that was on a local level when cricket released the ZTE Score. This could be a sign of things to come since ZTE is readily available in other countries around the world.
ZTE may not be a commonly known name to date. Rest assured that they will soon be as common as some of the other well known brands. In fact, Microsoft has officially made ZTE an official Windows Phone Mango partners licensed to use it. With back to school in full swing and the holiday season around the corner, this release is the beginning of what will be a steady stream of phones getting approval from the FCC and Bluetooth SIG.
There have been times where these FCC approvals do not end up getting released. The fact that the landscape of the industry changes fast does not guarantee it will be released.
PureMobile carries wide range of cell phone accessories and unlocked android phones such as Unlocked Samsung Infuse 4G, HTC Incredible, etc..
