Sprint Unveils The Android Powered ZTE Fury Smartphone

ZTE recently announced a new Android powered smartphone, the ZTE Fury. It is an entry-level smartphone which will be exclusively available for the Sprint customers in the US. This handset comes with a powerful 1 GHz processor as well as a 5 megapixel camera. The ZTE Fury currently runs on the Android 2.3 (Gingerbread) Operating System.
