This tablet, also known as the ZTE V9, is already shipping, just not in the U.S.—yet. It runs Android 2.1, is 3G, does voice as well as SMS, although whether it will still do voice if released in the US remains to be seen. This model has a 7-inch, 1024 by 600 pixel display, 512MB of RAM and 4GB of storage on board (no word on the CPU, which means it’s likely unremarkable); and storage of up to 32GB via microSD card. The rear-facing camera captures at 3.0 megapixels; plus, it has Wi-Fi, Bluetooth, and GPS.
ZTE does say that it plans to have at least one LTE device and at least one smartphone on a U.S. carrier this year. Other versions include the ZTE Lite (with 4G) and the ZTE Lite 2 (with a larger screen). No word on pricing or availability stateside.
