The ZTE LIght Tab 2, also known as the V9A, has now gone on sale at Expansys for £230. The tablet first came to light more than one year ago and promised, back then, to take on the Samsung Galaxy Tab and the HTC Flyer.
Like the latter it runs on a single core Qualcomm Snapdragon MSM8255 chip clocked at 1.4GHz and has a 7-inch 1,024 by 600 pixels capacitive display. However, system memory is limited to 512MB and there's only 4GB onboard (although the microSD card slot would allow it to raise it to 36GB).
Other features include a 3.2-megapixel camera at the back and a VGA front facing one, a 3400mAh battery, GPS, WiFI, GPS, and Android 2.3 Gingerbread powering it.
Back in 2011, the tablet feature list also extended to DLNA, Dolby Mobile, HDMI out as well as a Pixel Qi screen which allowed the display to be read even in direct sunlight.
Rivals at this price include the now obsolete Samsung Galaxy Tab, the HTC Flyer (which sells for less, comes with more memory and a capacitive stylus) as well as the Acer Iconia A100 and the Lenovo Ideapad A1
ZTE did not launch any tablets at the Mobile World Congress event in February but rolled out three phones; the Mimosa X, the Tania and the Era.
