Sprint launches a new budget-friendly Android smartphone, the ZTE Fury, which is a full-featured device “ideal for families who want the convenience and connectedness of a smartphone at an accessible price point”. The Fury sports a 3.5-inch 480×320 capacitive IPS touchscreen display, a 5 Megapixel camera with LED flash, and 4GB onboard storage.
ZTE’s Fury is boosted by a 1GHz Qualcomm MSM8655 processor with 512MB of RAM, and is loaded with Android 2.3 Gingerbread OS. It supports WiFi 802/11b/g with Mobile Hotspot capability for sharing 3G connection, and Bluetooth 2.1+EDR. It comes pre-loaded with the Sprint ID that enables customers to have a fully personalized experience with a few simple clicks. A 2GB microSD card is included with the Fury. The 1500mAh battery provides up to 8 hours of talk time.
As a family phone, the ZTE Fury supports Sprint’s family services including the Family Locator that allows parents to quickly and easily locate their family members on an interactive map; the Sprint Mobile Control that gives parents the opportunity to clearly understand their child’s talk, text and app use habits; and Sprint Drive First that automatically locks the phone when traveling more than 10 MPH and unlocks when the car has stopped driving.
The ZTE Fury is available for $19.99 after a $50 mail-in rebate via reward card and a new two-year service agreement.
