ZTE Announce the ZTE Light Android Tablet

ZTE, the Chinese manufacturer best known for peripherals and handsets branded by other companies, have announced the ZTE Light, a 7″ tablet computer running Android 2.1. ZTE may not be that well known here, but like the similarly unknown Huawei, they want to change this and right now, so a well-priced tablet could be the device to do it with.

The tablet’s feature list is good too, with 3G/HSDPA support, Wi-Fi, GPS, Bluetooth, a 3 megapixel camera, a microSD card slot, a 3.5mm headphone socket and a potential 10 hours of battery life. With a spec like this and the quoted 400 gram weight, the ZTE Light is very similar to the forthcoming Samsung Galaxy Tab.

What it probably won’t be though, is as pricey as the Tab. ZTE haven’t given an exact indication of the cost, but have said they aim to keep it affordable.

Europe, along with Latin America and Asian Pacific markets can expect the ZTE Light to go on sale before the end of 2010, but North America will have to wait until ZTE have evaluated the Light’s success before it, or a similar model, is launched there.
