Huawei Unveils World’s first 7-inch Android 3.2 Tablet
The World’s first Android 3.2 tablet has been released, and guess what? It’s not a Motorola, not an HTC, or a Samsung – but a Huawei! This overeacheiving electronic manufacturer in Singapore has gotten the step on the market giants. The tablet should be called the MediaPad
The tablet runs version 3.2 Android OS and it’s the first sophisticated 7-inch tablet we’ve witnessed in a while. According to Huawei, the Honeycomb 3.2 is basically similar to the 3.1, but exclusively tailored to 7-inch tablets.
Housed inside this media consuming wonder’s 10.5mm casing, you’ll notice a 217 pixels-per-inch IPS capacitive touchpanel, 1.3 megapixel forward-facing camera, GPS, 5 megapixel back-facing camera, 802.11n WiFi, a superior battery that could last around six hours and an a performant processor: a dual-core 1.2GHz CPU chip from Qualcomm. If things go as planed, shipping will begin in the US at the end of this year – but it still does not have a specific release date and pricing.
Huawei’s tablet is on par with HTC’s Flyer tablet, that runs on a non-tablet optimized edition of Android. The MediaPad weighs is lighter than the iPad, at 0.86 pounds, but is thicker at 0.4 inches, against the iPad’s 0.34-inches.
Huawei’s tablet include some interesting specs such as; dual cameras, one 5MP lens at the back – and it has the capacity to record HD video (although it’s not clear if it’s 720p or 1080p), it has HSPA+ (14.4Mbps) 3G support and a 1.3MP detector on the front for video calls and self-portraits.
With the 3G (HSPA+) and Wi-Fi support included, the MediaPad could play 1080p videos and provide 8GB of internal storage, with an added 32GN by microSD card. Huawei also will have Flash Player 10.3 , along with many handy apps preloaded like Twitter, Facebook, Documents To Go etc.
When the Huawei’s MediaPad hits the U.S. stores this year, the tablet is expected to sell through carriers at a subsidized cost. Funny though, for those interested in ponying for carrier data – Huawei just shut off your aspirations since it’s not planning on producing a WiFi-only version.
