ZTE to launch 8-inch V81 Jelly Bean tablet at MWC 2013

Whilst the dust is still settling on the annual CES show that was on a couple of weeks ago, the technology world does not settle for long, as the build-up to the next big event, MWC 2013, is starting already.

The Mobile World Congress will be taking place in February from the 25th to the 28th of the month and it’s looking like we will see a few big smartphones and tablets announced.

Before the event has even started, ZTE is continuing the 2013 onslaught it started at CES by announcing that it will be showing off its own Android Jelly Bean tablet at the trade show.

The ZTE V81 will be an 8-inch Jelly Bean 4.1 running slate which will sport a 1024 x 768 resolution and run on a nippy 1.4 GHz dual-core processor. There is also a rear 2-megapixel camera and a smaller 0.3-megapixel front camera for video calling. Internally the tablet will run off 1GB of RAM and 4GB of internal storage, the latter of which can be expanded by adding in a micro SD card up to 32GB.

The tablet will have Wi-Fi and Bluetooth connectivity plus full USB and HDMI slots, making it a handy media player.

The V81 is sized at just 200 x 156 x 11.07 mm and has a decent 3700 mAh battery inside so it’s portable and should last a decent amount of time, and all in the V81 is a nice sleek and simple looking tablet.

There is no news on pricing or where the tablet will be released, but with specs that are slightly lower than Google’s official Jelly Bean offering, the Nexus 7, we would expect the tablet to be priced at a similar if not lower price.
