If you’re in the UK and like budget Android tablets, soon you’ll have another one to consider when making your purchasing decisions. The ZTE V9A Light Tab 2 will become available before the end of February, and it’s probably a successor of sorts to either the ZTE Light, or the ZTE Light Pro, or even the ZTE Light Plus – who knows?
It will be quite affordable, but comes with specs that aren’t going to compete with any high-end offering from the past year or so. It will have a 7-inch 1024×600 touchscreen, a 1.4 GHz single-core processor, 512 MB of RAM, 4 GB of built-in storage, microSD card support, a 3.2 MP rear camera, a 0.3 MP front-facing camera, Wi-Fi, Bluetooth, 14.4 Mbps HSDPA, and a 3,400 mAh battery. It’s going to run Android 2.3 Gingerbread unfortunately, and not the tablet-focused 3.x Honeycomb or 4.x Ice Cream Sandwich, the latest version.
Perhaps the only surprising thing about the specs is that it comes with 3G/HSPA mobile data connectivity. The price, at £234.99, is certainly decent. That said, you’re getting a tablet running an OS version made for phones, and which is unlikely to ever get updated to anything else. If you don’t care about that, and need a cheap tablet with mobile data connectivity, look for the ZTE V9A Light Tab 2 to arrive in late February at online retailer Clove, which has already started taking pre-orders for the tablet if you’re interested.
