ZTE V9 breaks cover as very sleek tablet in the vein of Galaxy Tab


First uncovered last month when it was rumored to have a sliding QWERTY keyboard that has now proven to be untrue, Chinese manufacturer ZTE's V9 or ZTE Light is a very slim, sleek looking tablet. Unveiled at the P&T/EXPO COMM currently taking place in China until the 15th, the design of the V9/Light is quite reminiscent of Samsung's highly anticipated Galaxy Tab, with similar design cues and components such as the cameras/sensors in similar locations.

Featuring a 7-inch resistive touch screen in a very slim case weighing 14-ounces, the tablet runs Android 2.1 with ZTE promising an update to 2.2 later this year. Other known specs include 512MB RAM, 512MB ROM, WiFi, Bluetooth, WCDMA 3G connectivity, GPS, support for SD cards, a high capacity 3400mAh battery lasting 10 hours, a rear-facing 3MP camera, and a front-facing webcam. The V9/Light like some other recent Android tablets also appears to include full phone functionality, which also means that it can access Android Market.

Due to hit the Russian market next month closely followed by its domestic launch in China, the tablet is rumored to cost between 2000 to 3000RMB, which works out to between US$300 to US$450. See more images of the ZTE V9/Light after the jump and let us know what you think in the comments.
