The Orange Rio is a rebranded version of ZTE's X991. It is sold on the Orange network, and is a BlackBerry-styled phone directed to people on budgets or young users, with a QWERTY keyboard and a 2.4in touchscreen.


The Orange Rio has a 2.4 inch resistive touchscreen, unlike many other BlackBerry handsets and has a 320x240 (QVGA) resolution. However, it lacks 3G or Wi-Fi connectivity, and has Class 10 GPRS connectivity. It connects and charges using the mini-USB standard. It is a 2G handset. It is shipped with Opera's Opera Mini, and supports J2ME so users can load applications at their own will.
