ZTE Tania Windows Phone Mango handset officially announced: Only 4GB of Storage

The ZTE Tania has officially been announced and does indeed only pack 4GB of Storage making it the first Windows Phone to be based on a newly unveiled low-end hardware chassis which only requires a minimum of 2GB of Storage instead of 8GB like the regular Windows Phone Chassis. I personally think that this is totally nuts especially when a handset don’t have a micro-sd slot to expand its storage. 4GB is still not enough if you plan on using it for anything other than browsing the net and talking. Anyway, full press release after the break:

27 September 2011, Shenzhen, China – ZTE Corporation (“ZTE”) (H share stock code: 0763.HK / A share stock code: 000063.SZ), a publicly-listed global provider of telecommunications equipment and network solutions has today begun displaying its first Windows Phone, the ZTE Tania, at the PT/EXPO COMM China 2011in Beijing.

The Tania supports HSPA+, has a multi-point touch 800×480 WVGA resolution 4.3-inch thin film transistor (TFT) screen and a 1GHZ frequency processor with 3D acceleration. It also has a 512MB cache, 4GB of flash memory, an auto focus 5-megapixel camera, WIFI and A-GPS. The device comes pre-loaded with the latest version of Windows Phone, code-named Mango, and will launch later this year in a number of European countries.

ZTE is the sole Chinese smartphone strategic partner for Microsoft and plans to introduce additional smartphone devices based on the Windows Phone platform in the future.

Windows Phone has a unique user interface that utilizes Live Tiles, making it easy for users to connect and share with friends, family and colleagues. The operating system also delivers a fast, vivid web experience using Internet Explorer© 9 and hardware acceleration. It also connects apps to searches, making them easier to find and use.

“ZTE has had much success with its other phones and we hope to carry that over to Windows Phone with the Tania,” said Mr. He ShiyouExecutive Vice President and Head of the Terminal Division of ZTE. “This new smartphone will crystallize ZTE’s product strategy on multiple platforms while giving our customers a wider variety of OS choices.”

    I really like the looks of this phone, but 4GB wouldn’t be enough for me.

    My old N95 8GB had more ;)
