Seven Inch Pixel Qi Tablet announced by ZTE
While Adam’s Notion Ink tablet was the first Pixel Qi (pronounced “chee”) tablet to hit the scene, ZTE seems to have joined the party with their Light 2 tablet. The tablet was announced at the MWC yesterday and will be the first 7 inch Pixel Qi device.
The Light 2 is powered by a 1 GHz Qualcomm Snapdragon Processor, only 4GB of internal memory, dual webcams, mini-USB, and is only 12.6mm thick. The ZTE tablet will have a 7” display with a 1024x600 pixel resolution (170 pixels per inch) and will be running Android OS 2.2.
The Light 2’s main selling point is obviously the Pixel Qi display, which allows reading in direct sunlight while using 80% less energy than normal displays. Unfortunately the first Pixel Qi tablet, the Notion Ink, had many problems with shipping and launch delays so the Pixel Qi display hasn’t been put to the test as of yet. We’re hoping ZTE’s newest tablet doesn’t encounter the same problems before its Q2 launch, and we await pricing information to be released.
