Features

ZTE says the design of the handset was inspired by a skateboard (we'd say that's stretching it a bit) and features a 4.3-inch touch screen. It's lightweight at just 4.2 ounces, but it also feels quite plasticky.

Camera

In all, the Skate is a more midlevel device. It has a 5-megapixel camera and is running an 800MHz processor, compared to some of the higher-end devices with their dual-core processors and 8-megapixel cameras.

Keyboard

The Skate's onscreen keyboard was rather difficult to use even in landscape mode, since the buttons were so small and squished together.
