As we all know, ZTE will be one of the manufacturers that Microsoft had listed for their Windows Phone 7 devices. In fact, one such device was shown during Microsoft’s Worldwide Partner Conference 2011 last week, and it is the device pictured to the right. However it looks like Dr. Luo Zhong Sheng, General Manager of Mobile Communications at ZTE, posted on his Weibo account (China’s version of Twitter) a photo of ZTE’s upcoming Windows Phone 7 device, which looks nothing like the one they revealed the week before.
It’s not necessarily shocking as the device could have underwent cosmetic changes during its production, and combined with the understanding that ZTE will be releasing multiple Windows Phone 7 Mango devices around the same time, what we are actually looking at could in fact be a totally different Mango device.
Unfortunately the specs of the device was not revealed, although keeping in mind Microsoft’s strict hardware guidelines for WP7 devices, it will be exciting to see what ZTE will be able to produce. For an alternative to ZTE, you can check out the post we did on Fujitsu’s IS12T WP7 device here.
