Phones 4U the first to launch the ZTE Grand X, from today

Phone chain Phones 4U is leapfrogging the competition in selling the next new model from ZTE, with the dual-core ZTE Grand X available from today. The ZTE-branded model offers a 1GHz dual-core processor alongside a 4.3″ display running at 960×540 resolution, and is one of the big hopes among Android fans for giving us an affordable powerhouse to play with.

Phones 4U is selling the Grand X for “free” on monthly contracts starting at £20.50, with one Vodafone option costing £15.50 a month with a £50 upfront fee. It’s pretty tempting. Here it is:
