LAS VEGAS--Mobile device maker ZTE welcomed a trio of additions to its tablet family at CES.

All three are 7-inchers running Android and each has a 3-megapixel rear-facing camera, plus a VGA front-facing camera. Other specs vary slightly between the tiered models. The ZTE Lite tablet, for instance, features Android 2.2 (Froyo), 800x480 screen resolution, a 600MHz processor, and Dolby Surround 3.0 for an audio boost.

The more upscale ZTE Lite 2 tablet boasts a 1GHz processor, a 1,024x600-pixel screen, and DLNA support. It has 4GB internal memory. Both the Lite and Lite 2 are already available in Europe and Asia, but have not been released in the U.S.

A third tablet is the 4G-capable ZTE Lite LTE, which is still in production. ZTE reps told CNET it might run Android 3.0 Honeycomb. The LTE tablet is expected to launch in February or March 2011. Pricing, carriers, and launch dates have not yet been announced for any of the tablet trio.
