Mobile Miscellany: week of December 26, 2011

Brad Molen

This week may not have been incredibly packed with news in the mobile world, but it was still easy to miss a few stories here and there. Here's some of the other stuff that happened in the wide world of wireless for the week of December 26, 2011:

US Cellular prepping for Samsung Galaxy Tab 10.1 and Galaxy S II

Neither device has been announced for US Cellular yet, but a peek at the company's ESN system shows both the Galaxy Tab 10.1 and Galaxy S II listed. Granted, this doesn't make for a promise -- and never does, until it's made official by the carrier -- but it's a pretty strong indication that it's at least in the works and will most likely be coming out in the near future.

Nokia 801t Symbian Anna phone announced for China Mobile

The Nokia 801t has become official for China Mobile and is expected to arrive by the end of the month. The TD-SCDMA device offers Symbian Anna, NFC, a 680MHz CPU, an 8MP EDoF camera with dual LED flash and a CMMB TV antenna. [Engadget Chinese (translated), MyNokiaBlog]

ZTE introduces Fashion TV Android phone

If you've looked at the ZTE Blade -- also known as the San Francisco -- and loved everything about it besides the look, perhaps this version may be of interest. It's called the FTV phone, named after the OEM's team effort with Fashion TV. Frankly, it's a ZTE Blade with a paint job and a few new Fashion TV-related apps and wallpapers. Heck, it even has diamonds; don't get too excited, though, since they're just clip art-style drawings of diamonds included as part of the new exterior. Bling, indeed. No pricing or availability has been set yet. [UnwiredView, GSMArena]
