ZTE T98 Comes With Nvidia Tegra 3 SoC

ZTE has presented its first working, ready to roll out tablet, called the T98, with an Nvidia Tegra 3 SoC, the Kal'El, that comes with five cores and a stated clocked speed of 1.5GHz but underclocked to 1.3GHz.

The device was unveiled at the PT/Expo Comm China event that's currently underway, and Engadget (opens in new tab) writes that the T98 comes with a 7-inch 1280x800 pixel capacitive touchscreen and is only 11.5mm thick.

Other features include 1GB RAM, 16GB onboard storage, a 4000mAh battery, built-in 3G and Android 3.2 Honeycomb plus a two megapixel front-facing camera and a five megapixel rear-facing camera.

The T98 looks a lot like the original Samsung Galaxy Tab, with a big enough Bezel that allows the user to hold the device without interfering with the display area.

ZTE hasn't said when the tablet will be made available in the UK; obviously we're still waiting for an official announcement for the V9+, also known as the ZTE Light and its bigger brother, the ZTE Light 10.

The Chinese manufacturer has already presented a Windows Phone handset, the Tania, 48 hours ago and is also rumoured to be preparing for the launch of a Windows 8 tablet next year.
