ZTE decisively showcased its V98 tablet at MWC which was announced in September 2012 last year. The key features which this tablet ceilings are 10 inch display with an Intel Atom processor and serves the Windows 8.
When it attains to design ZTE did not leave any stone unturned during manufacturing ZTE V98 tablet aka slate. The front has a single sheet of glass which is protected from the edges by machined aluminum and encases the entire back too which slightly increases the weight but add lots of durability factors. The only problem, which has been noticed here is weak and fragile hinged lid covering the MicroSD card slot.
The ZTE V98 Windows 8 based Slate has a 10-inch display with a 1,366×768-pixel resolution. This is the minimum resolution, which should be acquired in any tablet of this size. Although these pixels are quite enough to enjoy the high quality HD video, but if the tab is at an affordable price then we can compromise in such a resolution. As already mentioned, the tablet has an Intel Atom Z2760 processor clocked at 1.7GHz and coupled with 2GB worth of RAM. This means that the tablet doesn’t deliver high speed, high-performance but stills with Windows 8 it provides quite smooth performance. In case of internal storage, it provides an expandable storage of 64GB. To capture beautiful photos, set at 8 megapixels in the back and 2MP front camera, which is amazing. Further in the connectivity genre, it is compatible with WiFi, Bluetooth 4.0, NFC, USB host, GPS. Last but not the least it is equipped with amazing 7000mAh battery.
