GSM Arena says that ZTE's joined forces with Fashion TV to introduce the FTV phone, a gaudy version of the ZTE Blade (also known as the Orange San Francisco) running Android 2.2 with some preloaded FTV apps, wallpapers, and other content. Rumor has it the phone will offer the same specs as the original Blade, including a 3.5-inch WVGA display, HSPA, Wi-Fi, a 3.2-megapixel camera, 512MB RAM, and a 600MHz Qualcomm chip. GSM Arena says the phone will be available in black, gold, and white varieties, with the Fashion TV logo slapped on each — though we're not sure that "fashion" applies to the device itself.

No word on price or availability yet, but we'll let you know when and if ZTE makes an official announcement.
