The first smartphone ever to have I had to put it down (office politics anyway). I’m talking of the first phone that introduced me to Android OS ZTE Blade.

I used my version of Android on a ZTE Blade that came on my MTN MyChoice 150 Kwacha and the contract tied to two years. I loved the Blade with superb functionalities.

Except the phone was fragile and dropping it on the carpet would render it the glass broken.

And that just did happen. Then a year later of its usage the phone would break down, stall, and eventually would not boot.

Here are some photo memories of the First Blade and my first Android OS 2.2 Froyo
