Huawei MediaPad coming next month, under Php20k

Huawei’s very own 7-inch dual-core Honeycomb tablet, the Huawei MediaPad, was shown to members of the press earlier today. We missed the event since we’re still in transit from SG but was able to squeeze out some details like release date and retail price.

We’ve had some hands-on time with the Huawei MediaPad way back in June at CommunicAsia and it was a huge news that time since they were the first one to introduce a Honeycomb 3.2 tablet at a really affordable price (it’s pegged at $499 elsewhere).


Huawei MediaPad
7″ IPS LCD capacitive display @ 1280×800 pixels, 217PPI
Qualcomm SnapDragon 1.2GHz dual-core
8GB internal storage
up to 32GB via microSD
3G/HSPA+ 14.4Mbps
WiFi 802.11 b/g/n
Bluetooth 2.1
GPS w/ aGPS support
mini-HDMI output
5MP autofocus camera
1.3MP front-facing camera
720p video capture
HiFi audio player
4100mAh battery, up to 6 hours
Adobe Flash 10.3
Android 3.2 Honeycomb

According to our source, the MediaPad will be finally released in the Philippines before end of November with a suggested retail price of around Php20k. We’re certainly hoping it will be under the Php20k mark. With an HSPA+ modem, it will surely be the most affordable 3G-capable, dual-core Honeycomb tablet in the Philippines.

    Amazon Kindle Fire price of 199USD is a winner as compared to this China brand

      kindle fire is not comparable to any android tablet… because they limit it as an ebook reader… unless u want to mod it…. IMHO

    Updated to include WiFi.

    • spg says:

      i own one, and i like it.. magaan, mabilis at presentable sya. wifi ready and running on android 4.0.1 hindi gaya nun kagaya ng ibang nababasa na andoid 3.2.. maganda sya gamitn, the camcorder it good ksi you can zoom it, even the sound maganda, sa video maganda, mabilis.. battery lang talaga ksi if your playing temple run, mabiis, pero if browsing lang, video, music tumatagal din.. i even have a case especially design for it.

    • sp says:

      yes, pwede sya lagyan ng simcard, apng text, call.. pre loaded pa ng YOZO office with excel and word, i think meron din syang powerpoint..

  10. Kei says:

    I have been waiting for this device! Android Tab on a smaller form factor with IPS screen and that superb pixel density. :D 10-inch tab isn’t really for me.

    I hope it will upgraded to ICS too.

  11. LG Promo Victim says:

    can the mediapad make and recieve call? and send and recieve sms, mms?

  12. arbee says:

    sayang walang wifi. :-( pero it doesnt take away the fact that it is still a cool gadget on itself.

    i read that someone was asking if this has wifi.. simpleng google lang yan guys.. and nowadays we sometimes we dont need to ask if it has wifi because baseline features na ng mga devices yan lalo na kung communication device ito hehehe…

    sana nga below 20 to… will finally own a tabled if ganun nga price nya

    WiFi 802.11 b/g/n – nakasulat sa specs…maliwanag pa sa sikat ng araw…panahon pa ni majin buu yang mga device na walang wifi

  15. jeff says:

    sa mga tablet ba nayan ay pwede ba akong mag-install ng ibang application tulad ng pc?

    • Wakocoke says:

      di po pwede sir ung mga x86 applications (windows) sa android. best bet mo sir is Windows 8 since it will natively support ARM architecture. yun nga lang, hindi din natin sure kung kayang ma-emulate ni Windows 8 yung legacy apps nya
