ZTE V9 Android Tablet – specs and price/android-tablets/zte-v9-android-tablet-specs-and-price/ /android-tablets/zte-v9-android-tablet-specs-and-price/#comments Wed, 04 May 2011 08:35:40 +0000 /?p=1074 ZTE V9 Android Tablet ZTE V9 Android Tablet   specs and priceSMART Communications – recently launched the ZTE V9 Android Tablet in the Philippines. This Slate has 7-inch display at 800×400 pixels in resolution. It has 3MB camera, a Bluetooth and USB for connectivity. The Internal storage is 512MB and expandable via microSD up-to 32GB. A basic feature that you can find in all Android Tablets.

This is one of the few mid-range Android Tablet in the market. The cool feature of this Slate is; it support 3G for connectivity and WiFi. According to SMART it is capable of  SMS and Voice Call via SmartBro Network (HSDPA or UMTS).

One really good feature I noticed is the battery capacity, it has 3400mAh, not comparable to XOOM and Galaxy Tab 10.1 though.

The downside of this Android Tablet is the operating system, it uses Android 2.2 Froyo while the latest Tablets in the market are powered by  Android 3.0 Honeycomb.

If you are looking for an affordable Android tablet the ZTE V9 is perfect for you, with the price tag of Php 12,795.00

ZTE also has another version of this tablet the V11, a 10.1 inch Tablet with Android 3.0 Honeycomb powered by 1.2Ghz processor. I am not sure if Smart will also release this version in our country.
