December 9, 2011, By Sanjeev Ramachandran

It seems ZTE is going ahead with their plan to release a new LTE tablet along with LTE smartphones in theUS. A 7-inch LTE enabled slate appeared at the FCC headquarters.

This hints that the Chinese company is in the process of introducing the device to US citizens. From the FCC filings, it is found that the V66 is compatible with LTE band 13- which is Verizon’s 4G network.

Along with this, the Big Red’s LTE logo was also spotted on the lower back of the slate. Other than these, the device was also tested for support of Bluetooth and Wi-Fi connectivity.

V66 is rumored to be the Verizon model of Sprint’s V55. V66 was first shown in spotlight at a Beijing tech expo that was held in September.

Earlier at the CTIA Wireless event, ZTE had revealed that a 10-inch tablet with high speed connectivity would reach masses in the second half of 2011.

But this V66 slate, rumored to be equipped with a 1.2GHz dual-core processor and a 7-inch screen with 1280 x 800 resolutions, is something unexpected. The tablet is most likely to be powered by Android 3.2 Honeycomb and will be packing 1GB RAM and a 4000 mAh battery.

The ZTE V66 is touted to reach the US market early next year. The price and launch details of the tablet are still missing, but we will update you as soon as we get wind of it.
