ZTE Skate is Monte Carlo http://snapvoip.blogspot.com/
The ZTE Skate is coming to Orange with a new moniker, Monte Carlo, just like ZTE San Francisco (ZTE Blade) Orange has decided to drop the ZTE, perhaps to drop the Chinese affiliations. If that is the case, don't worry about it Orange, all the iPhones and iPads are made in China too. They don't advertise it, but everyone knows it. There were even deaths of workers associated with iPhone.
But with all the name droppings the phone has become exclusive to Orange according to Inquirer, who interviewed Orange.
Name calling and business politics aside, the phone seem to be a pretty good contender to San Francisco. With its 4.3" (480x800) touchscreen is already larger than the San Francisco's 3.5in display. The Monte Carlo also comes with bunch of other features, a rear facing 5MP camera, WiFi, Bluetooth and G-sensors that will make it very appealing if the price is right, like San Francisco, aka ZTE Blade. Monte Carlo is powered by Android 2.3 (Gingerbread) and like all the phone in UK, the phone meets 2 W/Kg Specific absorption rate (SAR) requirement.
