Chinese device maker ZTE has been harping about a US entry for quite some time now, though it has not met with much success so far. However, this time they are armed with a new 7 inch tablet which boasts of a sleek design and could be the tablet to mark the company’s entry into what is considered the biggest tablet market in the world.
The model on display by NVIDIA runs on a Tegra3 quad core processor and has a 1280 x 800 pixel 7 inch display. The demo unit has 16 GB storage and the OS is Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich. An option to increase memory will surely be available on the tablet.
The demo also indicated very sharp but small sized text. This could be due to the display not having been tweaked well enough. Further details are lacking, so the expected price or availability details are anybody’s guess right now. We have already seen quite a few tablets at CES from front-line manufacturers featuring Tegra 3 and Android ICS, but sporting a highly affordable price tag. Also, while the prototype on display was to show off just how capable the new Tegra 3 chip is, a word from ZTE on this is expected soon.
