Telefonica and ZTE Unveil the New Light Pro, the First Mass Market Tablet

Movistar will sell the Light Pro tablets exclusively in Spain from May for between 0 and 19 euros for individuals and 0 and 119 euros for businesses, with contract, making modern tablet computing available to all its consumer and business customers.

In launching this product, ZTE is adding a high-end product to Telefonica’s range which is of significant strategic value. The ZTE Light Pro, a 7-inch tablet which runs on the Android 2.2 (Froyo) operating system, is the first of a series of high-quality products at competitive prices with which Movistar is aiming to popularise tablet use and raise awareness of the possibilities they offer for all kinds of applications.

Both new customers and those migrating from other companies and switching from prepaid to contract will be able to acquire the new tablet for $ 0 by signing up to an Internet Maxi flat-rate plan ($49 /month) or for $19 with the Internet Plus flat-rate plan ($39/month). Business customers will pay between 0 and 119 euros depending on the type of data and voice contract for which they sign up.

ZTE, technological partner of the Mutua Madrid Open, an ATP World Tour Masters 1000 event, has incorporated into the device an application specifically developed for this tournament which provides official statistics, player information and match schedules in real time. This means that tennis fans and sports information professionals will have an ally in the new Light Pro, which can supply information instantaneously and keep them up to date with tournament news.

The launch gives tablets a prominent position in Telefonica’s  portfolio and underlines the pivotal role they will play over the coming years in the online devices market, a sector whose rapid growth is being driven by the surge in new services and technologies that can enhance users’ lives and boost business productivity.
