ZTE-made T-Mobile Vivacity emerges: Android 2.3 Gingerbread and a 3.5-inch screen

Though it’s all about the big bad Galaxy Nexus and Ice Cream Sandwich right now, we’re not overlooking the other end of the spectrum.

A register your interest page for the ZTE-made Vivacity has appeared on T-Mobile’s site and it doesn’t look that bad.

Like ZTE’s other recent Android efforts like the Skate/Orange Monte Carlo, it looks like you get basic almost-vanilla Android 2.3 Gingerbread here, peppered with a bit of T-Mobile custom apps/bloatware (depending on how you view such things).

The screen measures 3.5-inches and there looks to be a front-facing camera on there as well. A fuller spec sheet has been unearthed on Littlewoods courtesy of the Eurodroid guys, revealing that you get a 5-megapixel main camera (no mention of a flash) along with the expected 3G, Wi-Fi GPS and Bluetooth connections.

Storage isn’t listed but there is mention of a microSD slot; we’re guessing somewhere around the 512MB mark given its price; hopefully you’d be able to fill this out by up to 32GB.

Littlewoods has this priced up as £119, the same price that Orange is currently selling the Monte Carlo on pay-as-you-go. We’d expect pricing on T-Mobile to be around the same mark but haven’t got anything official to go by yet.
