ZTE has been one of the busiest mobile technology manufacturers of these past months, unveiling an abundance of Android-based smartphones and tablets targeted at conquering every little piece of the US and European market.
The N910 hasn’t exactly been the most appealing smartphone in their offering, but the 4.3-incher is set to come with some more than decent specs and features and is certainly gearing up towards its release.
Having just passed the FCC with flying colors, it’s obvious that it’s only a matter of weeks until we will be seeing the handheld going up for sale, but taking a look at the FCC approvals, we can safely assume that the N910 will not be enjoying a very wide release.
With AWS and PCS (Band IV and II) support for LTE, the ZTE N910 will most likely be an exclusive gadget for one of US’ more modest carriers. Whether the carrier’s name will be Cricket or MetroPCS (or maybe both), it’s pretty safe to assume that the N910 will not be filling Verizon’s, Sprint’s or AT&T’s shelves.
As a quick reminder for those of you who missed this guy’s formal introduction a while back, the N910 is set to be powered by a 1.5 GHz dual-core Qualcomm Snapdragon processor and feature dual 5 MP/2 MP cameras, as well as a 4.3-inch WVGA screen with 800 x 480 pixels resolution. In terms of software, the 4.3-incher will run Android Ice Cream Sandwich out of the box, so all in all this should not be a very poor smartphone and might easily satisfy a technology enthusiast in search for a solid mid-range gadget these days.
Of course, the pricing will play a very important part in the making or breaking of this device, but usually the guys at MetroPCS and Cricket know how to make these gadgets affordable enough to sell in decent numbers.
