The 2012 MWC stays true to its name. And ZTE is really helping. They seized the opportunity to announce the launch of two quad-core tablets: the T98 and the PF 100. They are both powered by Tegra 3 chips and are both running on Android 4.0 Ice-Cream Sandwich.
ZTE PF 100
First we have the ZTE PF 100, one that uses a dedicated Icera 450 HSPA modem used for power efficiency and network performance. The quad-core processor is clocked to 1.5GHz and its also equipped with 1GB of RAM, 16GB of storage and a 5MP rear camera paired with a 2MP one in the front. As for display options, it uses a 10.1’’ display with WXGA resolution. Unfortunately, at first sight, it is thick and poorly put.
ZTE T 98
In the case of ZTE T98, it uses only a 7”” display. Which it may represent an advantage as it has the same 1280×768 resolution, thanks to the WXGA resolution that will bring better pixel density. As for the rest of the specs, they are fully identical to the ones on PF 100. But at first looks, this version appears to have the upper hand over its sibling. And that’s all due to the fact that it has a textured back which makes it a lot more visual attractive, and its a lot better put together.
Even though the support of TD-SCDMA 3G bands make this two tablets appear bound for China, ZTE said today that they have plans for attacking the United States market this year. But no official release date has been given for any of the tablets.
