Meet Blu

Blu is a relatively new phone manufacturer out of Miami that's aimed at the hip Latin American market, with some U.S. crossover to come.

We saw a sampling of Blu's GM world phone handsets at CTIA 2011, including this Tango, which runs Android 2.2 Froyo on a small 2.8-inch screen.

Most of Blu's phones are basic, but they attract buyers with their flashy colors. The Deejay, for instance (pictured), is accented with a variety of hues. It's successor, the Deejay 2, has a stouter frame, thanks to its QWERTY keyboard and candy bar shape.

This Click looks similar to some Samsung phones we've seen, but many of the Blu phones have an added stylistic element.
