Verizon will have its first ZTE-produced device hit the market, where the Salute slider handset will come with all the bare necessities for today including a 2.4-inch display and a 1.3-megapixel camera. Nice to see that even Bluetooth connectivity (2.0, presumably) is thrown into the mix so that you can carry out wireless hands-free conversations without worrying about receiving a ticket, not to mention a core level of Internet access that includes carrying out chats as well as sending e-mails on-the-go. A Media Center app will let you download games, wallpapers, ringtones and location-based services among others. If you’re paranoid about losing your data, the Backup Assistant will copy the address book to an online spot just in case the unexpected happens, while VZ Navigator can be accessed for turn-by-turn assisted GPS in unfamiliar territory. The Salute will cost you just $20 after a $50 mail-in rebate and a two-year contract.
