Official: 7-inch ZTE Optik headed to Sprint February 5 for $99

Sprint has made their $99 ZTE Optik tablet official, announcing that the device will go on sale on February 5th. The details match those that were leaked last week with the 7-inch slate featuring Android 3.2 Honeycomb, a 1.2GHz dual-core Qualcomm processor, 1GB of RAM, and 16GB of onboard storage. The Optik is immediately appealing for its low price, but judging from the aforementioned specs it won’t lack in power, although users will miss out on any sort of 4G connectivity (LTE, WiMAX, or otherwise). The device ships with a 3G-only radio. Data plans start at 1GB per month for $19.99. For those wishing to avoid a long-term commitment, the Optik will be available for $349.99 outright.

    3G!?!?!?!?! I can’t believe carriers are still selling 3G devices, that’s so last year!

      Well with Sprint’s Wimax practically dead, and LTE at least a month or more away, what would you have them do when the device is releasing in a few days?
