ZTE FuryRemember the ZTE Fury that was leaked in detail last week? Well, it looks like the phone has been officially announced. Issuing a press release today, Sprint announced the launch of the budget Android handset. It features a 3.5″ display, a 1GHz Qualcomm Snapdragon MSM8655 processor, a 5-megapixel rear camera, 4GB of internal memory, a microSD card slot (up to 32GB), Android 2.3 Gingerbread, Sprint ID and support for Sprint apps such as Sprint Family Locator, Sprint Mobile Controls and Sprint Drive First.

Sounds like the perfect phone for parents to give to their kids (despite its name), especially with its low price tag of $19.99 after a $50 mail-in rebate with a 2-year contract on Sprint. The phone will go on sale March 11th nationwide in all Sprint retail channels.
