A dual-SIM ZTE tablet pays a visit to the FCC, will reportedly fetch a sub-$200 price tag
Dual-SIM smartphones are nothing new and are already a common sight, yet tablets with two SIM card slots aboard are as rare as a hen's teeth. Apart from one variation of the Asus Fonepad 7 which has two slots on board, we've hardly seen any other device of the kind. Well, ZTE - one of the fairly-popular China-based manufacturers - might be poised to change that with a potential two-SIM offering that it reportedly has in its pipeline.

The device in question has recently passed through the FCC and received an "okay" from the certification commission, which means that it will most likely arrive in the USA in the foreseeable future. Dubbed the ZTE K70, the slate appears to be suspiciously similar to one of the more compelling small tablets of late, the water-tight and extremely petite 8" Sony Xperia Z3 Tablet Compact. ZTE's K70 will most probably pack a 7-7.5" display (which makes it either an extremely-compact tablet or an excessively-large phablet), support for both WCDMA and GSM connectivity, WiFi 802.11 b/g/n, and Android 4.4.x KitKat right out of its box.

The rumor mill puts a sub-$200 price tag on the slate, which hints us that it will probably be an upper entry-level or a lower mid-range slate at best. Any potential takers?

It seems like the time of the 7''-8'' tablet is about to come to an end as more phablets are sweeping them away.

Any tablet of this size running stock android is just a waste. Nothing is optimized for the screen size so you are essentially paying for a mobile TV.
