The China based ZTE has introduced a new tablet at the ongoing MCW that includes the sun light readable Pixel Qi screen. The other nice thing with the new Android tablet named ZTE Light 2 is that it comes with a 7 inch display making it the first in the segment to include the liquid crystal Pixel Qi display. Almost every other Pixel Qi based tablet that has seen the sun light has been in the bigger 10 inch segment.
“We are excited to partner with Pixel Qi to bring their innovative display technology to market,” stated Adam Zhang, VP and President at ZTE Mobile Broadband Device before further adding: “It brings a new level of performance to our family of tablet PC’s, rendering excellent images under any light conditions.”
The mood at the Pixel Qi camp is equally upbeat with their latest venture, something that can be summed up in what the CEO and founder of Pixel Qi, Mary Lou Jepsen had to say of the development: “Working with ZTE, a world-leading telecommunication company with a global customer base, provides us with an extraordinary opportunity to address a world-wide market.”
The Pixel Qi bit apart, the rest of the Light 2 story comprises of a 1 GHz processor along with 4 GB of internal memory while its Android 2.2 Froyo as the default operating system. The 7 inch multi-touch capacitive touch screen display boasts of a 1024 x 600 pixel resolution, packing in a healthy pixel density of 170 pixels per inch. Also, like it is with a Pixel Qi display, the new ZTE tablet also impresses with its outdoor readability, delivering a high contrast monochrome display out in the sun when the backlight is off along with a full color display when indoors with the backlight turned on. Not to mention the Pixel Qi display’s already award winning low battery consumption qualities. However, there isn’t all the details available just yet though we hope the Light 2 becomes a market reality soon enough.
So all in all, the new Light 2 presents a nice option to those who would like to have a taste of the innovative Pixel Qi display in a smaller package. Something that will be more pocket friendly, both size and price wise.
