ZTE responds to US ban, says it will 'take judicial measures' if necessary

ZTE was caught dodging US sanctions on Iran two years ago. To avoid a possible US import ban (ZTE is based in China), it paid nearly a billion dollars in fines. Part of the settlement required ZTE to fire four executives and discipline 35 others. Earlier this week, the US Department of Commerce said ZTE had not disciplined or reduced bonuses for the 35 employees. As such, the company was barred from importing US tech (including Qualcomm processors) for seven years.

Source: ZTE may lose its Android license because of US ban

Yesterday, it was announced by the US Commerce Department that ZTE had violated terms of its settlement with the government and was being subjected to a seven-year ban of the export of any American goods or technologies for use in its products. Today, according to Reuters, a source familiar with discussions between Google's parent company Alphabet and ZTE says the two are still very much undecided on whether the Chinese smartphone maker will be able to continue using the Android operating system.

Android is an open source piece of software, so it's hard to imagine that any entity - government or otherwise - could realistically prevent ZTE from using it.

Back in 2016, ZTE was accused of dodging United States sanctions on Iran. Even though ZTE is based in China, it was selling technology from the United States to Iran using multiple shell companies. The US Department of Commerce threatened to cut off ZTE from all its supply chain partners in the US, which ZTE avoided by paying nearly a billion dollars in fines.

ZTE's crazy 'Iceberg' concept has two display notches

Display notches are the controversial smartphone design trend du jour: while the Essential Phone beat Apple to the punch, the notch is the defining trait of the iPhone X, and, for better or worse, it's being aped by a whole bunch of Android OEMs. Reactions have been mixed. If you're not a fan, avert your eyes—ZTE has a concept it's calling "Iceberg" that features not one, but two display notches: one at the top, one at the bottom.

Taboola partners with ZTE to launch a news feed for smartphones (and you won't believe what happens next)

Now, Taboola is looking to become part of your smartphone with its new "content discovery" platform. It looks a lot like the Google Feed, but it's not. In fact, it could come off like one giant ad on your phone.

ZTE Tempo Go is the US’s first Android Go phone, on sale today for $80

For a while, ZTE and Alcatel seemed like they were in a bit of a race to be the first company to release an Android Go phone in the US. Two weeks ago, Alcatel announced that its 1X would be coming stateside sometime soon, and ZTE had the Tempo Go listed but unavailable on its US site since just after its announcement. Today you can finally buy one, and it's only $79.99.

That officially makes the ZTE Tempo Go the first Android Go phone in the US.

Here are all the Android Go phones announced at MWC 2018

Android Go was first introduced by Google at I/O in May 2017, so it's been a long wait for real devices running the slimmed-down Oreo experience. We hoped Mobile World Congress in Barcelona would be when OEMs began launching Android Go phones, and this was confirmed by Google last week.
