(Pocket-lint) - ZTE has announced the 7-inch Light II Android tablet. Running Android 2.3 and packing a 1.4GHz Qualcomm MSM8255 processor, it isn't exactly leading the way in specs terms. ZTE has never really been about pushing the boundaries of power however, more about building decent quality value for money tech. 

We saw it with the recently announced Tania WP7 handset, which was nicely put together when we got our hands on it. 


The Light II made an appearance last month when it cropped up alongside some other ZTE branded tablets on the Clove website. The tablet was priced at £234 and due to launch in February with 4GB of memory on board, expandable by microSD of course.

We now have a bit more on the tablet from ZTE itself. It weighs 402g, features built-in FM radio and manages 5.5 hours of video playback off a fully charged battery. On the front is a 0.3 megapixel camera, on the back a 3 megapixel snapper. 

“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, Director, Mobile Device Operations, ZTE. "We plan to continue our progress in the UK, introducing ZTE branded consumer devices with key capabilities at reasonable prices,” 

Expect to see the Light II hitting shop shelves very shortly.
