ZTE release two new phones for the Australian market – the Blade A610 and the Blade V7 Plus

ZTE Australia has quietly released two new mobile devices into the Australian marketplace, launching the Blade A610 and the Blade V7 Plus.

The mobile devices, which seemed to have popped up during the Christmas/New Year period, seem to be available through two of our major non-telco mobile retailers – JB Hi-Fi and The Good Guys. Looking at their specs individually, they aren’t too bad for the asking price of each device.

The A610 doesn’t look so bad for mums/kids.
