Chinese telecom heavyweight Huawei has announced a new 7-inch tablet. The device will ship with a 1.3-megapixel front-facing camera, as well as a 5-megapixel rear-facing camera, boasting auto-focus and HD video recording. The MediaPad will feature Wi-Fi and HSPA+ (14.4Mbps) connectivity.
The platform will be what Huawei calls the "world's first 7-inch Android 3.2 Honeycomb tablet." The MediaPad isn't Huawei's first foray in the tablet space. Earlier this year, the company unveiled another 7-inch tablet running Android, called the Ideos S7 Slim. That device is running Android 2.2 (Froyo).
Huawei Technologies Co. will start selling a seven-inch tablet device called MediaPad that runs Google Inc.'s Android operating system in the third quarter, Victor Xu, chief marketing officer of Huawei's devices business, said Monday.
Huawei's MediaPad runs the new Honeycomb version of Android, weighs less than a pound and uses a dual-core 1.2-gigahertz processor from Qualcomm Inc., Huawei said. That goal so far remains distant despite Huawei's push into the consumer market. About seven million Huawei mobile devices were sold to end users in the first quarter, giving the company a 10th-place market share of 1.6%, according to market-research firm Gartner.
The new Huawei MediaPad can play full 1080p HD videos and record videos using its 5 megapixel at the rear. Huawei has unveiled a new Google Android 3.2 Honeycomb running MediaPad tablet at the CommunicAsia 2011 convention in Singapore. Housing a dual-core 1.2GHz Qualcomm processor, the new Huawei MediaPad is 10.5mm thick and has a 7-inch touchscreen display. It promises HD video recording and full HD playback.
Huawei has also offered an HDMI port for connecting the tablet to an HD display. MediaPad will compete with 7-inch Samsung Galaxy tab, Olive Telecom's OlivePad, HCL's Me Tablets and the upcoming BlackBerry PlayBook.
