Major carrier T-Mobile USA has just announced the upcoming availability of one of the cheapest Android phones available on the market, the ZTE Concord.
The phone is retailed as T-Mobile Concord and will be available for purchase starting August 26 via Target.
Customers can purchase the smartphone for only $99.99 USD (80 EUR) outright. The Concord can be paired with a qualifying Monthly4Gplan.
The Monthly4G no annual contract plans will provide customers with access to unlimited talk, text and worry-free data without hard cap or overage fees.
According to the carrier, the T-Mobile Concord is now available for purchase at Walmart locations for $99.98 USD (80 EUR) paired with a Walmart Family Mobile no annual contract plan.
The Concord is aimed at T-Mobile customers who wish to take advantage of the carrier’s no annual contract plans, including via T-Mobile Monthly4G and Walmart Family Mobile.
As we already mentioned earlier, the smartphone is manufactured by Chinese handset makers ZTE, which is one of the main reasons it’s so cheap.
The smartphone is powered by Android
2.3 Gingerbread operating system out of the box, and will probably be stuck on this version forever.
T-Mobile Concord is available in midnight blue color and offers 3G connectivity, along with Wi-Fi, Bluetooth and GPS support.
The device also sports a pretty decent 3.5-inch HVGA capacitive touchscreen display, as well as a sub-par 2-megapixel rear photo snapper with video recording capability.
Customers who wish to purchase their first Android smartphone should take the T-Mobile Concord into consideration, especially that it’s been priced so low. Not to mention that customers won’t need to sign up for a long-term contract in order to buy it so cheap.
In other news, T-Mobile USA is expected to launch more high-end Android smartphones by the end of the year, as well as at least one Windows Phone 8
device, so stay tuned for more updates on the matter.
