Chinese device maker ZTE is rolling out a new 8 inch tablet with a 1024 x 768 pixel display, a 1.4 GHz dual-core processor, and Android 4.1 Jelly Bean software.
In other words, the ZTE V81 is about the size and shape of an iPad Mini, although I have a feeling it will carry a lower price tag than Apple’s tablet.
The ZTE V81 has 1GB of RAM, 4GB of built-in storage, and a microSD card slot for additional storage space. It has a 2MP rear camer and a 0.3MP front-facing camera, and the tablet features a 3700mAh battery.
ZTE’s tablet supports 802.11b/g/n WiFi, Bluetooth 2.1, and GPS. It also has a UMTS/GSM modem for mobile broadband.
Ports include HDMI, USB, and audio, and the tablet measures 7.9″ x 6.1″ x 0.4″.
While ZTE is based on China, the company is one of the top 5 phone makers around the globe, and ZTE has been pushing hard to get into the US market. So there’s no guarantee the ZTE V81 will be available in the US anytime soon… but there’s also no guarantee that it won’t.
