Chinese manufacturer ZTE has introduced the Orbit at this year’s MWC in February. We’ve seen official wording just one day before the show started and we’ve managed to get our hands-on with the device on the show floor, at the manufacturer’s booth. After exactly seven months from its unveiling the phone has now landed on US Cellular’s Windows Phone line-up (where it sits together with the good old 7Pro from HTC).
Back in February it was the first Windows Phone 7.5 Tango-powered device we’ve laid our hands and eyes on. It packs a four-inch WVGA screen, 1GHz processor, 4GB of internal storage, five-megapixel camera with LED flash but no front-facing webcam (Skype doesn’t even run on Tango), and CDMA/EVDO radio. It goes for $299.99 outright from US Cellular or $79.99 with a two year contract after discount and mail-in rebate.
