Timidly unveiled for the first time in the fall of 2012, the ZTE V98 tablet has taken this year’s MWC by storm with a complete spec sheet, but still no pricing details. Expected out in Q3 2013, the 10-incher will land in China first and then, depending on its popularity, could enjoy a wider rollout.
Despite running Windows 8 Pro, the V98 is not exactly the most impressive tablet around. Our biggest concern is the 1,366 x 768 pixels resolution panel, which, how to put this… is sub-par, at best.
The rest of the specs are pretty awesome, starting with a dual-core 1.8 GHz Intel Atom Z2760 processor, a PowerVR SGX 545 GPU and 2 GB of RAM. The aluminum chassis looks elegant and sturdy at the same time, while connectivity options will include the standard Wi-Fi and Bluetooth 4.0, but also optional 4G LTE.
The 32 GB of on-board storage, microSD support, 8 MP rear-facing snapper (!!!), 2 MP secondary cam and 7,000 mAh battery wrap up the list of features quite nicely, which makes us ache even more at the thought of that poor, poor display. Why no Full HD, ZTE?!?
