ZTE certainly had some of the more entertaining phone names at Mobile World Congress 2011. Here we have the ZTE Amigo.

The ZTE Amigo is more of a lower-end device, but it does run Android 2.2 and features a slide-out QWERTY keyboard.

Keyboard

The keyboard was fairly easy to use. The buttons were a good size and had a fair amount of spacing between them. The keys feel a bit gummy, though, similar to the original Palm Pre.

Being a lower-end device, the Amigo only has a 3.2-megapixel camera and no front-facing camera for video calls.

ZTE Blade

We actually saw the ZTE Blade at CES 2011, but the company had it on display again at MWC. Despite being called the Blade, we're not entirely sure why it has San Francisco emblazoned on top of the phone.

Features

The Blade has a 3.5-inch touch screen, that's pretty sharp and clear. Unfortunately, it only runs Android 2.1, though ZTE has said the smartphone will be upgradeable to Android 2.2.
