ZTE announced today that it has partnered with regional carrier Pocket Communications to release the ZTE C78 and the ZTE C79. Previously, these handsets have only been with MetroPCS. The C78 is a candybar-style phone with a 2-inch backlit display, stereo Bluetooth, but not much else. The C79 is a flip phone with external music player keys, a 1.3-megapixel camera, and stereo Bluetooth as well. Both handsets will be available for Pocket Communications subscribers in Texas and in New England. No word as to pricing just yet.
