While ZTE might have been busying taking the wraps off some of their newer devices at MWC, we guess not all of the company’s products were on display as device known as the ZTE Optimus Barcelona made an appearance at the Bluetooth SIG and WiFi Alliance websites, featuring 3G connectivity and WiFi 802.11 b/g/n, Android 2.3 Gingerbread and appears to be headed for Europe.
While we have no problems with those particular specs of the device, what is puzzling is its name utilizes the “Optimus” moniker that has been favored by LG all this while, and if the device were to launch with the Optimus tag, we’re pretty sure it will not sit well with the South Korean company and could result in a trademark lawsuit of sorts.
However the Optimus name aside, it has been speculated that due to it being named after a city, there is a chance that we could be seeing the device make its way onto Orange, who has in the past launched handsets named after cities. Unfortunately additional details of the device were not available, but we will be keeping an eye out for this, so check back with us at a later date for more info.
