T-Mobile ZTE Concord Arrives; Costs You $100 for a Pretty Decent Smartphone

August 24, 2012, By Sanjeev Ramachandran

T-Mobile’s handset range has been enhanced with the announcement of the new Concord smartphone built by ZTE.

The Concord has all in it to attract you with its specs. And further, the $99.99 price tag and lack of a required contract will probably mesmerize some buyers.

Featuring a 3.5-inch display and a 2-megapixel camera, the Concord unfortunately runs the rather stale Android 2.3 Gingerbread instead of the slightly fresher Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich or even fresher Android 4.1 Jelly Bean. But still, the price tag stands apart and it is indeed the most important feature of the phone.

It’ll feature 3G connectivity, not HSPA+ and it will have all the basic connectivity options you can expect from mid-range smartphones.

Customers will be able to avail the device with a T-Mobile single-line, Monthly4G no annual contract plan which will gain them the benefits of unlimited data, text and calling.

This massive debut of the T-Mobile Concord comes on a day when T-Mobile put down the sword for another Android smartphone, the Galaxy Note. T-Mobile’s 5.3-inch “phablet” was launched at the start of this month.

The carrier pulled the device from its website without explanation and it now appears that they have canceled the device altogether, possibly for arranging a suitable platform for their upcoming Samsung Galaxy Note 2.

The T-Mobile Concord is also currently available at Walmart for $99.98 paired with a Walmart Family Mobile no annual contract plan.

Being the 4th largest carrier in US, T-Mobile is working hard to cut their position from 4th to 3rd and above it.

With this smartphone, they intend to capture more users as the most important thing that markets every phone is its price.
