We saw the ZTE Smart tablets back at IFA 2011 but no details confirmed where it would launch. Now the 7″ Honeycomb tablet from ZTE has cleared the FCC making us hopeful it will see a U.S launch soon. It’s about time we get a few more 7″ tablets in for some competition although I have a feeling we’ll have plenty to choose from very soon.

Looking through the FCC filing we see a rear facing camera, Google stamped on the back, as well as support for both Wi-Fi and 3G connectivity. We are looking at a soft coated rubber texture type backside for easy grip, as well as Android 3.2 Honeycomb but the rest of the details remain pretty tight lipped. We did see an ZTE Tab with 4G LTE back in March, so this new tablet could have the same fate although we only se 3G stamped on the image above.

Along with the Vodafone versions we can expect Android 3.2 Honeycomb and a dual-core 1.2 GHz Qualcomm Snapdragon processor, 1GB of RAM, and coming in both 16 and 32GB flavors. The rest of the details regarding the ZTE Smart Tab are a bit scant but once we dig up further details we’ll be sure to update you all. Pricing and availability is still unknown at this point.
