MetroPCS adopts ZTE C88

While phones designed in China tend to remain in that country, US carrier MetroPCS has decided to adopt the C88, created by ZTE and recently submitted to the FCC for approval. One unusual aspect is its aesthetics, which involve copious amounts of gloss on both the keypad and the exterior, unlike many other budget-level phones; similarly, its closed shape mimics the Motorola RAZR. The phone is also notable for storing unspecified media on microSD cards, and having a USB port to sync with a computer; a camera, two color displays and stereo Bluetooth round out known features. MetroPCS has not indicated when the C88 will be available for purchase. [via Phone Scoop]
