Chinese co. affordable tech maker ZTE has revealed a new Android-packing tablet; the Light II – a 7-incher with respectable features to rival some of the most high-cost gadgets on the market but at a cost which is much more wallet-friendly.
ZTE is the company behind inexpensive wares such as UK network Orange’s self-branded mobile handset range (including the San Francisco) as well as the recently announced Windows Phone the ZTE Tania, which has wowed us with its generous features and sub-£200 price tag. The new ZTE Light II tablet continues that successful balance, presenting us with a 7” touchscreen display, 1.4GHz of processing power supplied by Qualcomm, 512MB of onboard RAM and 4GB internal storage.
The Light II also includes a reasonable 3.2-megapixel rear-camera and a 0.3-megapixel front-facer for face-to-face video chat. Completing the respectable features list is Google’s Android platform; this ZTE tablet comes with last season’s version which is 2.3 aka Gingerbread.
Company Director for Mobile Device Operations Wu Sa comments on the balance of adequate spec and affordability with the Light II and the ZTE range of gadgets: “ZTE V9A (Light II) is ZTE’s first own-branded tablet made available in the UK and we are very excited about its entry into the market. We plan to continue our progress in the UK, introducing ZTE branded consumer devices with key capabilities at reasonable prices”.
Eager online ‘e-tailer’ Clove has already listed the ZTE Light II for shipping at the end of February with a pre-order asking price of £249 – Tidy!
