Earlier this month we explained to our readers how they could get their hands on a Windows Phone Mango device for cheap as ZTE, the Chinese telecommunication equipment specialist, were offering their first smartphone of 2012, the Tania for less than £250. Now it appears that value for money is a theme amongst the company’s other portable devices also, as they are will soon be offering their V9A Light Tab 2 tablets for pre-order for just £234.
We also brought you some interesting news about another tablet that the company has on offer earlier today, as it was reported that the ZTE Optik is an Android 3.2 Honeycomb device that will be available for just $99 on a two year contract at Sprint, undercutting its fiercest rivals and closest competitors, who offer similar ecosystems, by a substantial amount.
Today’s news comes courtesy of online retailer Clove who has just announced that the ZTE V9A Light Tab 2 Android tablet will be up for pre-order as from the end of February. It will run Android 2.3 Gingerbread, which unfortunately is not the latest version of the OS although it is still impressive, besides for a 7” tablet at that price there can’t be many complaints. Clove describes the device as ‘a computing solution that offers performance and reliability at a price that we all prefer.’
As far as the specs are concerned reports are suggested they have improved since the tablet was first announced last year. As well as the Android 2.3 Gingerbread OS and its 7” capacitive touchscreen display, the Light Tab 2 will also feature a 3,400mAh battery, a 3.2 megapixel camera on the rear, 4GB of storage and a 1.4GHz processor. It also includes Wi-Fi as well as 3G and will be just 12.6mm thick making it a very attractive product for first time tablet buyers.
