Today, ZTE and Virgin Media have announced the apparently “hotly anticipated” ZTE Blade Q series in the UK. The 4’’ ZTE Blade Q Mini will be available to purchase initially with Argos from today from £59.99. It will be available with Sainsbury’s at a later date.
So nothing astounding here, but for the price what do you expect. It would make a decent alternative to the budget Samsung or Nokia options at the price.
