Telefónica thinks there’s money to be made in the Spanish tablet market. Hence they’ve teamed-up with ZTE to launch the low-cost ZTE Light Pro, offering it for free to anyone who agrees to commit on a two-year contract.
The device runs Android 2.2 Froyo, while boasting specs that include 3G and Wi-Fi connectivity, GPS, 3-megapixel camera, Bluetooth and a memory card slot. In other words, it’s like the original Samsung Galaxy Tab, only cheaper — plus the ZTE Light Pro’s screen is not as stellar as the one Galaxy Tab has.
Additionally and as part of the tablet promotion, ZTE agreed to install more than 150 Light Pro tablets in VIP boxes at the Mutua Madrid Open so that guests can access information on the tournament and “savor the experience of using the equipment.”
Price wise, Telefónica (actually Movistar) is offering ZTE’s tablet for free to users who sign-up for the Internet Maxi flat-rate plan (49 EUR/month) or for 19 EUR with the Internet Plus flat-rate plan (39 EUR/month). Kinda steep, but hey – you get a free tablet! 😉
