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.

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.

On the left side, there's a volume rocker.

The top of the device has a 3.5mm headphone jack, so you can rock out to some tunes.

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

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.

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.

No surprises here. Just a volume rocker on the left side.

The power/lock button and 3.5mm headphone jack sit atop the smartphone.

The ZTE Blade has a 3.2-megapixel camera but no flash.

Unlike the ZTE Skate, the Blade's onscreen keyboard was much easier to use.
