Sprint ZTE Optik tablet $100 too much

At the end of last month, we gave you news that US carrier Sprint were introducing for the first time, a new tablet by the name of the ZTE Optik running on Android’s 3.2 Honeycomb OS. Available from the 5th February with or without a contract, the new Optik with 7-inch display will act as an E-reader, Media Player and Portable computer.

Other packed specifications will include a 1.2GHz dual-core processor, 1GB of RAM, 16GB of internal storage with expansion via microSD card slot, 5MP rear and 2MP front cameras, connectivity with WiFi and Bluetooth plus a 4000mAh battery. Available from the above date at Sprint, the Optik will retail for $100 on a two-year contract, but we have to point out that it will run with a 3G connection, but as Engadget explained no WiMax or LTE, so perhaps a let down for many of you!

Carrier Sprint are offering consumers four data plans, being that of 1GB of data at $19.99, 3GB at $34.99, 6GB at $49.99 and lastly 12GB for $79.99.

A stand-alone CDMA price is reported as being that of $350 if you prefer to not be tied down to a contract.

Are you tempted at all by the new ZTE Optik, what are your thoughts on the pricing structure?
