ZTE is hoping to have a big 2012, according to comments the company made to reporters in Hong Kong. One way the company hopes to boost smartphone sales is to bring a "phablet" to market. "We want to come up with the next generation of a Galaxy Note-type product - a combo product of handsets and tablets," said Lv Qianhao, head of handset strategy at ZTE. The company believes it can deliver such a device to market by the end of the year, though it didn't specify in which countries such a device would be sold. Other than this phablet-style device, ZTE indicated it plans to improve its Blade and Skate Android smartphones this year, rather than bring brand new handsets to market. The company sold 15 million phones in 2011, and is targeting 50 million for 2012.

Better Hurry

They had better be fast and they better be good. By the end of the year it will be time for the second version of the Galaxy Note. That means ZTE's "note" imitation will have to be much better than just the Note, and at least on a par with the Note 2.

Man, I love competition, even though it appears to be only among device makers and not carriers.
ok Google buys Verizon Wireless and have a Droid Network
Apple buys AT&T and have a Inetwork
Microsoft buys T-Mobile and Windows Network
RIM Sprint and Regional Carriers come together for a Joint Venture CrackBerry Network
