ZTE's new vanilla Android mid-ranger has landed at one UK store a little earlier than expected. The Grand X, which we saw at its launch event last week, is now available online at Phones4U, with on-contract prices starting at £15.50 per month, with a £50 up-front charge for the phone. Alternatively you can get it for free on contracts starting at £20.50 per month, or buy it outright for £199.

The Grand X is ZTE's effort to enter the premium handset market in the UK, with a phone sporting a dual-core NVIDIA Tegra 2 CPU and a near-stock Android 4.0 software experience. The phone also rocks a 4.3-inch qHD LCD display, 512MB of RAM, a 5MP rear camera and a microSD card slot. It's not bleeding edge by any means, but considering you'd have paid top whack for that kind of device less than a year ago, a £199 price tag seems more than reasonable. Vanilla ICS should also win the Grand X some admiration among Android purists.
