Cyber Defence Watchdog Claims China’s ZTE “Poses Risk to UK Security”

ZTE is a phone company that doesn't have a huge following in this country, mainly because they're not as mainstream as Apple or Samsung, and haven't spent as much on publicity establishing themselves as someone like Huawei.

Fancy a £60 Firefox Phone?

Do we really need another smartphone OS to contend with iOS, Android and Windows Phone? Anyway, for just £60, the ZTE Open Firefox-powered phone might be worth a punt, maybe? Strangely, it's exclusively being sold by ZTE on eBay; that's where phones go to die, right? Read More >>

Intervention: We Need to Talk About the Phablets

Look. We knew that at CES this year, we'd be inundated with a metric tonne of giant phone/tablet monstrosities. We were ready.
