Sprint officially announces the ZTE Optik, available Feb. 5 for $99

We first outed the $99 ZTE Optik Honeycomb tablet a week ago, and today Sprint has made it official. The 7-inch Android 3.2 device will be available Feb. 5. Spec-wise, the Optik is right up there with most other Android tablets. To wit:

  • 7-inch display at 1280x800 resolution
  • Android 3.2 Honeycomb (No mention of an Android 4.0 upgrade)
  • Dual-core Qualcomm Snapdragon processor at 1.2GHz
  • 1GB RAM
  • 16GB storage
  • GPS
  • Wifi (802.11 b/g)
  • 4,000 mAh battery
  • Bluetooth 2.1+EDR
  • Stereo speakers

Do we finally have an Android tablet that beats all others on price while matching many in specs? We'll have to wait until we get it in our hot little hands. But consider our intereset piqued.
