ZTE's barrage of announcements didn't involve just phones, it also has no fewer than four tablets to tout here at Mobile World Congress.

The headliners are two quad-core tablets: the PF 100 and T98. The PF 100 has an Nvidia T30S 1.5Ghz quad-core CPU with an Icera 450 modem for HSPA connectivity, Android 4.0, and a 10.1-inch screen with WXGA resolution. There's 1GB of RAM and 16GB for storage and a 5-megapixel camera on the back. The T98 is a 7-inch version with the same processor and general specs, including the WXGA resolution on the smaller screen for higher pixel density, though it is TD-SCDMA.

The V96 is also a high-end tablet, though like everything LTE here at MWC, it's running on a dual-core Qualcomm processor instead of a Tegra 3 — it's clocked at a very healthy 1.7GHz, however. It's running Android 4.0 and has HSPA+ in addition to LTE. The rest of the specs are as you'd expect a 5-megapixel camera, 16GB of storage, and 1GB of RAM.

Rounding out the set is the V9S on the low end. It's a 10.1-inch tablet with a dual-core Qualcomm processor clocked at 1.2GHz, 1GB of RAM, and 16GB of storage. Unfortunately and pretty much inexplicably, it's also stuck with Android 3.2 instead of Ice Cream Sandwich. It will connect to GSM and UMTS networks, but won't handle HSPA+.

ZTE isn't giving prices or exact release dates for any of the above, but they have promised that at least some of these tablets are destined for the US market, possibly as early as Q2.
