The ZTE Tania has a range of apps pre-installed that deliver the kinds of things you'd expect from a smartphone. You've got alarms, a calculator and a calendar among them.
There's also the Office hub that's exclusive to Windows Phone. This gives you access to Mobile versions of OneNote, Word, Excel and PowerPoint on the device, as well as synchronisation to SkyDrive.
If you are a business user you can also access SharePoint services, and there's also access to Office 365 if you are a subscriber to that. There's nothing like pushing at your own brand, Microsoft!
This being a Microsoft Windows Phone handset there's Bing Maps here rather than Google Maps. We've already noted its ability to find local places of interest, and its connection to Internet Explorer, which helps with searches.
Bing Maps can also provide driving direction between one place and another.
This is all much of a muchness with other Windows Phone smartphones and what there isn't anything ZTE adds to help differentiate the ZTE Tania from the rest of the bunch.
Still, the Marketplace's offerings are growing all the time, and it's well worth a scout around for games and more to help you pass the time or be more productive.
