ZTE Android tablet for Sprint clears the FCC
From the looks of it, Sprint might start offering a new tablet in the near future – a smallish Android slate made by ZTE. Bearing a model name V72C, the device in question just popped up at the FCC, along with a few images revealing details about its specifications. 

What we know about this ZTE-made tablet so far is that it should have a screen of about 7 inches in diagonal, judging by its size. Also, there's a camera of some sort on its back. Apparently, one of the tablet's main selling points will be the presence of a cellular radio with 3G (1x/EvDO) support. However, no 4G LTE connectivity is being mentioned anywhere in the papers. The mandatory Wi-Fi and Bluetooth radios are indeed available.   

If released, the ZTE V72C could become the spiritual successor to the ZTE Optik – a low-cost Android tablet, which Sprint launched back in 2012. It would also be a reasonably-priced alternative to the Verizon Ellipsis Android tablet, which Big Red is offering for $250 off contract.

Im gonna guess free on a 2 year agreement. Sprint is offering the Tab 3 for 49.99, if this tablet doesnt manage to be somehow cheaper, it will fail.

Don't see this tablet succeeding if it isn't a Samsung or Apple based tablet. All other tablets sold by Sprint never sold. *cough* HTC Flyer *cough*
