Chinese device maker ZTE announced plans earlier this year to start offering Android tablets in the US. Now it looks like we may have a sneak peek at the first model, courtesy of the FCC. A listing for the 7 inch ZTE Smart Tab7 showed up at the Federal Communications website today.
The tablet will be available with WiFi and 3G capabilities. The FCC document doesn’t have much more to say, but Engadget noticed that it shares a model name with the Smart Tab 7 recently unveiled by European phone company Vodafone.
If this is the same tablet, we could be looking at a device with Google Android 3.2 Honeycomb, a 7 inch, 1280 x 800 pixel display, a 1.2 GHz Qualcomm Snapdragon dual core processor, 1 GB of RAM, and 16GB of storage. It will likely have front and rear cameras, and may measure about 0.44 inches thick and weigh about 0.84 pounds.
Unfortunately there’s still no word on that ZTE Light 2 tablet with a Pixel Qi sunlight-readable display we saw earlier this year. I’m not sure that model will ever see the light of day in the US.
