ZTE has quietly rebadged its V11 tablet, which was presented at CES and MWC last month, as the Light 10', according to a slide that was briefly shown during a press briefing earlier today.

The Light 10, which joins the Samsung Galaxy Tab 10-inch, the Motorola XOOM and the HP TouchPad, will compete against the iPad 2 which ironically will be the first to go on sale in the UK while being the last to be announced.

ZTE's tablet will not be available through retail partners like DSGi, Tesco or Best Buy, only through the company's traditional partners, mobile phone operators like Everything Everywhere and O2.

The Light 10 comes with a 10-inch 1280x800 pixels capacitive screen, a dual core 1.2GHz dual core system-on-chip, 512MB RAM, 16GB onboard storage, Wi-Fi, Android Honeycomb, a 5-megapixel camera and a front facing 2-megapixel camera, A-GPS and three sensors.

The tablet comes with Bluetooth, HDMI port, a microUSB port and also supports DVB-T HDTV which could mean that the tablet could be used to stream Freeview HD content (although technically this would require DVB-T2).

The specs unveiled at the presentation this morning are almost similar to what we saw at MWC except for a different front facing camera and significantly enhanced battery life; the Light 10 promises more than eight hours working hours and 720 hours standy time compared to 5.5 hours movie play and 120 hours standby time for the V11 (on a 6800mAh battery).
