Verizon's ZTE V66 tablet poses for the camera, struts dual-core and LTE

Verizon's ZTE V66 tablet poses for the camera, struts dual-core and LTE
After Sprint leaked its upcoming ZTE Optik (V55) 7-incher yesterday, today is Verizon's turn. The 7" ZTE V66 was caught on tape, looking like a vanilla Android tablet, but under the hood we have 1.2GHz dual-core processor and LTE connectivity, while Sprint's ZTE model sports only 3G.

The ZTE Optik on Sprint is scheduled to show up February 5 for just a hundred bucks, though, while we don't know yet whether the LTE connectivity will make the ZTE V66, or whatever it ends up named, more expensive than a Benjamin on contract.

ZTE announced the V66 way back in late September last year, but nobody paid much attention to the dual-core 7 and 10-inch ones, since it also outed the quad-core T98 then, but here we go - the V66 is heading to Big Red, and it already passed the FCC in the process last month. 

Other specs include 1280x800 resolution, which is pretty sweet on a 7" device, and Android Honeycomb from the start, which will hopefully be replaced with Ice Cream Sandwich at some point down the road.

According to sites, the model for Sprint will be $99 on contract, so this may be that price too. If so, $100 for a HD screen Android Tablet sounds pretty sweet.

Its Verizon we are talking about here. There is no way that it will go for any less than 200 bucks.
