ZTE D-series 3G Phone

Normally limited to its Chinese home, ZTE today said it would launch its D-Series phones in the US. The firm hopes to manage the frequently overwhelming amount of text typing needed on today's phones by using Digit Wireless' US-made Fastap keyboard technology: letter keys are wedged between the numbers and raised to make it possible to quickly draft an e-mail or an SMS message without a larger keyboard.

The phone also promises 3G-level speeds through EVDO, a 1.3-megapixel camera, Bluetooth, and media playback for MP3 songs and MP4 videos. ZTE is readying the D-Series for US carriers in April and should see an official release in the following months. A full photo is waiting after the break.
