ZTE Light II tablet to hit the UK running Android 2.3

Having released a number of own-branded smartphones in the UK during 2011, ZTE is to kick off 2012 with the arrival of the ZTE Light II tablet

 

Budget Chinese tech manufacturer ZTE has announced it is to release a new 7-inch tablet in the UK with the ZTE Light II tablet officially unveiled.

The company’s first own-branded tablet to be made available to UK users, the ZTE Light II, also known as the ZTE V9A, is expected to hit stores later this month with the 7-inch device to land running Google’s Android 2.3 Gingerbread OS.

“ZTE V9A is ZTE’s first own-branded tablet made available in the UK and we are very excited about its entry into the market,” said Wu Sa, ZTE’s Director of Mobile Device Operations. “We plan to continue our progress in the UK, introducing ZTE branded consumer devices with key capabilities at reasonable prices.

“Our UK strategy is very much focused on providing quality devices - a factor which is apparent through our growth and development in the handset arena.”

ZTE Light II Specs

As well as packing Google branded innards, the ZTE Light II will touch down with 4GB of internal storage expandable via microSD card as well as a 7-inch TFT_LCD capacitive touchscreen.

Whilst a Qualcomm MSM8255 processor is set to feature within the 402g device, forward-facing and rear-mounted camera are to land alongside integrated FM radio and a battery life touted to extend to 5.5 hours of continued use.

ZTE Light II Release Date and Price

Although ZTE has yet to officially confirm a set release date and price for its first UK bound tablet device, the Light II release information leaked recently with online retailer Clove stating the Samsung Galaxy Tab 2 and Orange Tahiti rival would land in February with a budget £234 price tag.

Is there still a market for 7-inch tablet devices or has Apple with the 9.7-inch iPad set to bar of what is expected from tablet devices? Share your thoughts on the matter via the T3 Twitter and Facebook feeds.
