JB HiFi now selling ZTE Urbane a Telstra pre-paid phone running Ice Cream Sandwich for $149


JB HiFi are now selling a phone from ZTE called the Urbane for $149. Whilst it’s nothing to rave about specs wise it is at least running Ice Cream Sandwich which is a huge plus especially in this end of the market and it also has a 4″ screen which isn’t too bad although I was hard pressed to find any specs on the screen resolution Edit : Screen resolution is 480×800 (WVGA)Thanks Alex.
Specs :

  • 1GHz CPU
  • 4″ Capacative Screen
  • 4GB memory with microSD Card Slot
  • 3 MP camera
  • Bluetooth 2
  • WiFi
  • FM Radio
  • 1600mAh
    • Talk Time – up to 240 minutes talk time
    • Standby time – up to 200 hours standby

ZTE has long been an OEM manufacturer for companies such as Telstra making handsets such as the Telstra Smart Touch 2 which they just released, the release of this handset could mark the start of their entry into the mainstream market in Australia. $149 is a decent price if you’re looking for something running ICS and from what I can see it should be a fairly vanilla version of Android as well. Check it out on the JB Hi-Fi website or head in-store to get your hands on one.

Dan is a die-hard Android fan. Some might even call him a lunatic. He's been an Android user since Android was a thing, and if there's a phone that's run Android, chances are he owns it (his Nexus collection is second-to-none) or has used it.

Dan's dedication to Ausdroid is without question, and he has represented us at some of the biggest international events in our industry including Google I/O, Mobile World Congress, CES and IFA.

Also…the ZTE site mentions it gets the Telstra blue tick for rural coverage but JB doesn’t have the blue tick logo on their site

ZTE site says 2.5 GB internal RAM and JB HiFi says 4GB and I can’t find it listed on the Telstra site…gotta love consistency…I wonder how vanilla this build of ICS will be…obviously it will have the usual Telstra fluff all over it but hopefully beyond that it will be pretty much stock…probly be a good phone if you were going to be happy with ICS forever and didn’t want to install any apps
