    ZTE Optik - US only 7 inch honeycomb tablet


    Mark Dearlove

    The 7 inch tablet options in the US continues to increase with and more manufacturers introducing models into what was previously a fairly niche market.

    ZTE have announced their first foray in partnership with Sprint. The ZTE Optik will go on sale this week at the headline price of '$100'. This price is only available to those buyers taking out a 2 year data contract with Sprint so its not as good as it looks. If you want to buy it outright then it will cost you the princely sum of almost $350 which is a lot of cash for a tablet of this ilk. Bearing in mind the expected launch price for the Asus MeMo 370T is just $250 for a quad-core Tegra 3 sporting 7 incher, I would be loathed to pay $350 for the Optik.

    The specs are OK, 1.2GHz dual-core cpu, 1GB RAM, 16GB storage, and a 1280x800 screen resolution, but they are unlikely to tempt people to part with their cash at the price point announced.

    I have said it before and I will say it again - where is the innovation from manufacturers? Maybe we will see someone with their finger on the pulse launch something truly innovative. Am I aiming my hopes too high?
