There was some rumors about Huawei’s imminent release or the first 7-inch tablet running on Android 3.2, but as the date was pushed further, people lost interest. It is finally here, at least is you live in Malaysia or Singapore, but it will be available worldwide by the end of the year. Honeycomb 3.2 is not a major upgrade for the previous version, but it is custom made to fit the 7-inch slate and given Huawei’s MediaPad technical spreadsheet, it will surely do.
The tablet is powered by a 1.2 GHz dual core processor by Qualcomm, has 8GB of storage and a highly sensitive touchscreen. Additionally, it will feature a rear-facing camera of 5 megapixel and a front facing one of 1.3, has 3G support and can play videos in 1080p. In can run Flash 10.3 and among the apps that are worth mentioning, we should include Twitter, Facebook or Let’s Golf. In terms of design, Huawei’s MediaPad is slick and light, and it looks considerably better than its predecessor.
For those who are not exciting about signing up for carrier data, the Huawei’s MediaPad has one significant lacking as the Chinese manufacturer doesn’t have a WiFi-only model. Only time will tell if this eventually emerges, but for those who are looking forward to the launch data, this is a one thing that they shouldn’t expect. It took quite a while for Huawei to announce the price for the MediaPad, but if those prices in Singapore are an indicator, it will cost less than $500.
The sooner it will be released, the higher the profits will be for Huawei, because the market is highly competitive and other manufacturers might capitalize on their delay. In terms of performance and price, the ratio is excellent and those who add the MediaPad in their inventory, won’t regret their decision.
