ZTE FTV in a Fashion TV tie-up shows up

Chinese handset maker ZTE has teamed up with Fashion TV on its first fashion-oriented smartphone, the FTV. It has the same technical specs as the original San Francisco available at Orange, GSMArena found. Unique to the phone are the FTV paint and logos along with exclusive FTV apps, wallpapers, widgets and other content.

It uses Android 2.2 rather than the San Francisco's Android 2.1 as well. The same 3.5-inch AMOLED touchscreen with a 480x800 resolution, 600MHz Qualcomm processor and 512MB of RAM are present as in the phone it's based on. The phone also gets Wi-Fi, 3G using HSPA, GPS, and an FM radio.

Why ZTE didn't base the Blade on the slightly better equipped and newer San Francisco II isn't known, though it could be because Orange offers this phone exclusively.

The Blade will be available in black, gold and white, thought when it ships or what it will cost remains to be seen.
