This isn't the first 7" tablet we've seen at CES and it certainly won't be the last, but it is the first we've seen from ZTE, the Chinese manufacturer which has been trying to shift from being a low-end device maker to a higher-end device maker, and in the process also make the transition into the US market.
The tablet is actually found at the NVIDIA booth at CES. It is a pretty generic looking 7" tablet that is said to be at a middling 1280x800 resolution, although the demo unit didn't seem to have Android tweaked properly for the screen size and resolution as icons were a bit too small. The tablet is running a Tegra 3 processor, which is why it is being shown off by NVIDIA, and it is running Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich.
No word on price or release date for the tablet, but if ZTE wants to make a successful move into the US market, it's going to need to either price this very aggressively, or have a huge marketing campaign, because with the glut of tablets
coming this year, it's going to be a very crowded market.
