Picture Of ZTE V55 Tablet Appears Online

A picture of the soon to be launched ZTE Smart Tab V55 tablet has appeared on Bluetooth SIG website (courtesy of UnwiredView (opens in new tab)).

The tablet has rounded corners, and other than saying that it is a CDMA tablet with Bluetooth wireless technology (and will run on Sprint), there's not much else that the listing provides.

Expect it to come with Wi-Fi, Android 3.2 Honeycomb, a single core Qualcomm Snapdragon SoC clocked at 1GHz or more (possibly 1.4GHz like the HTC Flyer), 512MB RAM, onboard storage, a microSD card reader, a 7-inch 1280x800 pixel display and a rear camera.

We expect ZTE to launch a new tablet called the T98 which will come with a quad core Nvidia Tegra 3 SoC. There are also the ZTE Light and the ZTE Light 10 which we saw earlier this year, but which appear to have gone missing action.

The Light 10 also caught our attention, because it also includes a Freeview HD tuner, the first tablet we know of that could achieve that.

It will be interesting to see whether any of the ZTE tablets actually go on sale before the end of the year, and whether they are going to be sold via retailers or through operators only.
