UK retailer Clove came out with the ZTE V9A Light Tab II slate last month and it started taking pre-orders for that. This is an affordable 7 inch Android tablet with 3G connectivity, that’s pictured below.

This Android 2.3 Gingerbread slate is priced at 234.99 quid and you can find it at Clove right now with projected shipping late this month or in early March. Keep in mind that all of this was unofficial talk and it’s only now that ZTE officially announced the Light Tab II for the uK market, although it was already available on the Spanish, Indonesian market..

Other features of this affordable device include a 1024 x 600 pixel resolution, a 1.4 GHz single core processor, 512MB of RAM, 4GB of internal storage, a microSD card slot, a 3.2 megapixel camera and a 0.3MP front shooter. Connectivity-wise we get Bluetooth, WiFi, 14.4Mbps HSDPA and a 3,400 mAh battery.
