Huawei yesterday announced the upcoming launch of the company's next Android tablet - the Huawei MediaPad - which is said to be the world's first 7" LCD capacitive touchscreen Android 3.2 Honeycomb tablet. Powered by a Qualcomm dual-core CPU at 1.2 GHz, the MediaPad supports HSPA+ up to 14.4 Mbps as well as WiFi b/g/n and Bluetooth and features a HDMI-out port. It is Huawei Device's smartest, slimmest and lightest tablet yet, measuring just 10.5 mm deep and weighing around 390g. It supports 1080p full HD video playback and features a 1.3 megapixel front facing camera and 5 megapixel auto focus rear facing camera with HD video recording capabilities.
The MediaPad builds on the global success of the IDEOS S7 Slim tablet and cements Huawei Device's ability to cater to the explosive demand for tablets. According to the International Data Corporation, sales in the tablet market are expected to increase more than fourfold in the next two years. The MediaPad will be showcased at Huawei's "Smart for Transformation" booth at CommunicAsia 2011 in Singapore. Along with Huawei's latest range of smart devices, the MediaPad is a prime example of Huawei Device's focus on the power of practical innovation.
It's expected that the Huawei MediaPad will be launched in the late 2nd half of 2011. Huawei has not yet announced any price information.
