In a media launch tonight, Huawei Philippines launched their pocket WiFi, a Froyo phone with an early preview of the Ideos S7 Android tablet.
The unit we saw during the launch is just an engineering unit and they won’t be releasing it in the Philippines until first quarter of next year.
Huawei Ideos S7
7.0″ TFT touch screen @ 800×480 pixels
Android 2.1 Eclair
HSDPA 7.2 Mbps, HSUPA 5.76Mbps
WiFi 802.11 b/g/n
USIM card socket
SD card slot
2MP front-facing camera
Li-Ion battery 2200mAh
That’s all the details we got for now. The screen is still resistive on this unit but works just fine. I talked to the local representative and they said they’ll work on a capacitive screen before they release it here.
As for the pricing, they’ll definitely offer it below the Php20k mark but there’s a good probability they can bring it at under Php15,000 (it costs $299 on Best Buy). Now that’s gonna be a big challenger when that happens.
