Three is the magic operator for Chinese handset maker

The unstoppable march of Android continues, with last week seeing Chinese handset maker ZTE adding another smartphone based on the Google mobile operating system to its line-up.

The device, pictured here, will be sold in the UK through operator 3 at a cost of £99 for users on a pay-as-you-go contract.

The ZTE Racer also uses an accelerometer to automatically orientate the screen to either landscape or portrait mode, depending on how the user is holding it.

According to ZTE, the device has a battery that will last for 3.5 hours of talk time and 200 hours on standby.
