Verizon Turbine 7.0 enters the carrier's internal system, may be the official name of the ZTE V66Alex Wagner - Editorial Director of News and Content
Hot on the heels of the appearance of both the Samsung Stratosphere II and LG Spectrum 2 in Verizon's internal systems, another unannounced device has been spotted inside the big red carrier's computers. This time it's the Verizon Turbine 7.0, a product that Engadget speculates could be the ZTE V66 that we saw pass through the FCC way back in December 2011. Unfortunately for tablet enthusiasts on Verizon, this leaked entry doesn't offer any information on when the Turbine 7.0 might be launching or how much it'll cost when it does.
The ZTE V66's spec list is said to feature a 7-inch 1280x800 display along with a 1.2GHz dual-core processor, 1GB RAM and 4,000mAh battery packed inside its body. Last we heard, the device was also due to come preloaded with Android 3.2 Honeycomb, but it seems likely that Verizon and ZTE would want to update the Turbine to at least Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich. Now that the Turbine has made its way into Verizon's systems, we just need the carrier to announce the thing, which will surely please the 7-inch tablet lovers on Big Red happy since it'll mean another addition to its lineup of smaller tablets. How many of you prefer a tablet in the 7-inch range over a larger 10-inch model?
