Hands-On: ZTE 7-inch tablet with Tegra 3 and Ice Cream Sandwich

If you thought just seeing the upcoming Asus-made, Tegra 3-packing, 7 tablet from afar was a nice thing to see, you may be happy with what you see right here. While it likely won’t be coming to the US anytime soon, if at all, after cruising around the NVIDIA booth we saw a tablet from ZTE. Not only was this tablet running Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich but it also has the Tegra 3 running the show.

We couldn’t get a real feel for the device since it was tethered to the stand but it’s what you’d expect to see out of a device of it’s kind. We’re going to go out on a limb and say the 7 incher sported a 1280 x 800 display, as most worthy tablets are shipping with a similar resolution today. It’s an overall decent design, with rounded edges and a rubberized grip backing.

Running Android 4.0.1, the tablet showed off all the Ice Cream Sandwich goodies but other than eye candy, there was little to test out due to the lack of data connection at the booth.

So while we patiently await the Asus 7 inch Tegra 3 tablet, feel free to blur your eyes when looking at these pictures.

    Me likes it 🙂 the only weird stuff is watching a 7 inch screen in 4:3 :s is like the “mini TouchPad” of HP that was never on the market. However, i’ll buy it if they make it to our market
