Back in December ZTE said that they were going to focus on delivering higher quality Android superphones to the United States. We also heard several rumors that ZTE would be bringing a new tablet to market as well. That tablet seems to have appeared, and it’s headed to Sprint.
Phandroid is reporting tonight that the ZTE Optik is a 7″ dual core Android 3.2 Honeycomb tablet headed to Sprint. The best part is if the sources are correct, that tablet will cost a mere $99 on a new two year agreement.
More after the break
Both ZTE and Huawei are Chinese based companies that are able to put out devices with higher specs at a lower cost. Both companies have also had a little bit of trouble penetrating the U.S. Market. ZTE hopes to change that now. ZTE has a medium to high range Android phone on Sprint’s prepaid outfit Boost Mobile.
As for the Optik we’re looking at a 1.2 ghz dual core processor, 16gb internal storage, 1gb of RAM, and Android 3.2 Honeycomb. In the camera department there’s a 5 mp shooter in the back and a 2mp front facing camera.
The tablet should be available next month.
