Hands-On: ZTE Amigo, Skate and Blade
ZTE offered up three new Android phones at MWC today. While it appears that none of them is headed to the U.S. (yet), Phone Scoop took them for a spin anyway.

The Amigo is a fun little Android device that is aimed at the texting crowd. It is a sideways slider, and therefore somewhat bulky. The slider mechanism felt pretty good, though, and it had decent build quality. The plastics were of good quality and didn't come off feeling cheap.
The screen is on the small side (>3.5 inches), but it is very bright and sharp. It looks good. The Amigo appears to be running Android 2.2 Froyo, and the software ran smoothly and without any bugginess.
There are a handful of Android control keys on the front of the phone, but the slider offers a full QWERTY keyboard for messaging. The keys are a bit on the flat side, but they offered good travel and feedback for typing.
It's a cute Android device that will surely appeal to the market segment ZTE is aiming for.
ZTE is looking to the Blade Max View, an inexpensive Android phone with a huge screen and a massive battery, to help it regain its place in the U.S. market.
