Huawei – or should that be, who? If you’re a media connoisseur you’d be forgiven for not knowing who Huawei are – they haven’t exactly taken the electronics world by storm. That hasn’t stopped them making a media tablet though, but why would it, it seems like everyone is churning them out nowadays.
OK so what can you expect from Huawei for your money? Android 4.0 sound good? That’s right this device will be one of the first Android tablets to be released with Ice Cream Sandwich pre-installed, so you won’t have to wait for an update like most Ice Cream Sandwich compatible devices.
This seems to be Huawei’s strength, delivering current OS systems – the last MediaPad was the first to ship with 3.2 Honeycomb. This one comes with full HD playback, a 1.2GHZ processor, and six hours of battery life. Not bad specs, but nothing new or even marginally exciting in this heavily saturated market.
If you aren’t happy with classic black, don’t worry, because Huawei have created the MediaPad in two other colours, classic brown and passion pink.
OK, they aren’t the best alternatives, but they’re alternatives all the same. You’ll be able to buy the new MediaPad in the next few months, an RRP has yet to be released, but expect to pay the same as the other competitors on the market.
