zte-aweAs fragmentation in the Android world becomes less of a problem by the day, the Jelly Bean butter is spreading like wildfire, being now easily accessible for anyone from speed addicts to the most casual of smartphone users.

You can score JB-based handhelds for as much as $700 or $800 these days if you absolutely positively need to own bleeding-edge hardware, but at the same time you can drop as less as 100 bucks and get on the Android Jelly Bean bandwagon.

$100 sans any contractual obligations, mind you, and you don’t even have to search high and low for that magical $100 Jelly Bean phone. Instead, all you have to do is swing by Virgin Mobile and purchase one of the newly released ZTE Awe devices.

I know what you’re thinking. Virgin is not exactly a top carrier in the States. Plus, there’s no way this Awe thing isn’t buggy and laggy as hell considering its price range. But guess what. Virgin may not be very big… on its own, but it is a very trusted prepaid service provider, being a subsidiary of Sprint.

As for ZTE Awe’s crappiness, I’ll let you be the judges of that, based on the following list of features:

  • 4-inch 800 x 480 pixels resolution display
  • Android 4.1 Jelly Bean
  • 1.2 GHz processor
  • 1 GB of RAM
  • 5 MP camera
  • 4 GB of on-board storage
  • MicroSD support
  • 3G, Wi-Fi and Bluetooth 4.0 connectivity
  • 1,650 mAh battery

Buggy? Laggy? Crappy? I think not… with all things considered.
