ZTE Venture Presale Now Available Through Virgin Mobile USA


Virgin Mobile customers in the United States will soon have another Android-based QWERTY device to choose from. This one is a portrait exposed QWERTY, not unlike Blackberry devices. It’s a 2.8 inch device with a 600MHz processor, a 2 megapixel camera and a microSD card slot which comes with a 2GB card pre-installed. March 15th is the day it’s said to drop. If you’re interested, pre-order yours here for $99. [via Android Central]

The "Google Phone" sounded too awesome to pass up, so I bought a G1. The rest is history. And yes, I know my name isn't Wilson.

  1. uh…  I think the G1 is more advanced….  Why on earth are OEMs still making these crap devices?!!

    1. Because the “great unwashed masses” are buying them due to the low prices.

      Same reason people buy at Walmart etc.

      1.  Yeah, it drives me nuts to know people will actually pay $100 for this!  You can pick up a Galaxy S for a freaking penny right now.  twice the processing power, etc….

        1.  That Galaxy S is on contract, for plan rates about double what you would pay with VM and other carriers. This, on the other hand, is sold contract-free.

        2.  and 5 times the monthly price

  2. So is this the first Android in the US with a 2mp camera?

  3. wow…i like this form fator with the keyboard, but it’s a single core 600 mhz. processor?  What’s the point?  User experience is going to be terrible on this.

    1. The Optimus V has a 600 Mhz processor and the user experience is fine

  4. Cheap device and cheap monthly probably will bring in people who are still using feature phones but I would like to see some high end devices from VMO as well, just like you guys. I am using VMO right now and have I am in San Jose and been very happy for $40 for 1200 minutes and unlimited everything.. I did get the email from VMO about 2.5 GB cap and throttle

  5. Ill pass and wait for the HTC One V. Thanks.

  6. It’s all about a balance. It’s either get this lower priced phone with an unlimited plan for $35 or buy the Galaxy S and pay $2000 on a contract. IMO I’d rather get a lower end phone. I hate contracts.
