Adding a tempting new device to the current pool of affordable 7" tablets, ZTE and Sprint introduced the 3G-connected Optik in February, bringing to market a great 7" display, Android 3.2 Honeycomb, and an ample 1.2GHz dual-core snapdragon processor, all for $99 on a new contract. In a nutshell, the Optik is a decent 7" tablet for those on a budget. While it isn't the best tablet around, it's powerful enough for most tasks, feels great in the hand, and isn't too bad to look at. Here's a more complete look at what the Optik has under the hood:
- Android 3.2 Honeycomb
- 7" PLS display at 1280x800 (216dpi)
- Dual-Core 1.2GHz Snapdragon processor
- 1GB RAM
- 16GB Built-in storage with microSD slot
- 5MP camera and 2MP front-shooter
- 800/1900MHz 3G connectivity
- 4000mAh battery
Before we get started with the full-on review, we'll look at just a few of the Optik's positive and negative points.

When it comes to rumors, the day before the press conference announcing a device often turns out to be the most reliable. Just such a rumor has landed today, in the form of a purported "press photo" of Sprint's EVO One (at least, that's the rumored name).
Now, I don't want to be a Debbie-downer here, but there are a few things that make this "press photo" look like less than the real McCoy (though I'm not outright calling it a fake - so read on).
First, there are the images flanking the supposed EVO One. These stock photos of the AT&T and T-Mobile One X and One S, respectively, have been available for over a month now.
