MetroPCS Snags Another Chinese Phone

The FCC has revealed a second Chinese produced handset for MetroPCS, this one from ZTE. The ZTE C88 is a mid-level feature phone that runs CDMA 1x. This black clamshell has an internal antenna and bears a slight resemblance to the Motorola RAZR when closed. It includes two color displays and has a Electroluminescent (EL) backlit keypad. The C88 also has a camera, stereo Bluetooth, USB for data transfer, and speakerphone.

This is a win-win situation for Metro customers and the company.

Are MetroPCS and the FCC playing a joke on us? Two Chinese handsets, form two different companies, both entering the US market, all at the same time. Seems a little fishy to me.

Dont knock it till you try it...
Alot of people have gripes about the razr, and while this will probably not be much better at least its an alternative. The proposed system looks pretty generic, but at least its fairly feature rich.
5.Color external display
These are all good features, and more importantly, standard features people want in a cell phone. But the proof is in the pudding so i guess we can wait and see if and when it comes out.
