Sprint to offer $100 Honeycomb tablet in February


Details from Sprint’s latest Playbook have leaked online, which shows the carrier is set to launch a $100 Honeycomb tablet in February. Called the ZTE Optik, it features a 7-inch display, a dual-core 1.2GHz processor, 16GB storage, and 1GB RAM. Not bad for a hundred dollars if you ask us. What’s the catch? It’s a 3G tablet with no support for Sprint’s WiMAX or LTE network. That probably won’t bother too many people as we see most users prefer Wi-Fi connectivity anyhow.

ZTE Optik specifications:

  • 1.2 GHz dual-core CPU
  • 16 GB internal memory
  • 1 GB RAM
  • 7-inch display
  • microSD card support
  • 4000 mAh battery
  • Android 3.2 (Honeycomb)

While it’s certainly not going to win any benchmarks or shatter any sales records the tablet should have decent appeal.  We believe the magic price point for a 7-inch tablet needs to be around $100 if you are going to tie us to a contract.

According to AndroidCentral the ZTE Optik will land online February 5 with an in-store date of March 11.
