Chinese tech firm ZTE has been making phones for other companies to stick their logos on for years. Now it's branching out into selling ZTE-branded models, with one of the first being the new, affordable, ZTE Tania.

Set to arrive here in early February for a SIM-free price of around £249, the Tania features a large 4.3" capacitve touchscreen running at 800x480 resolution, with a 5megapixel camera around the back and a 1GHz single-core processor plus 4GB of storage space inside -- plus it'll come with Windows Phone Mango as its OS.

ZTE expects it to launch on cheap smartphone contracts well below the £20 mark, although if you'd rather go SIM-free the Tania ought to set you back around £250 when it launches in the UK a few weeks from now. [Techradar]
