Bumped into several familiar Singaporean media friends who happened to just have just finished covering the Huawei event this afternoon where the company launched the Huawei MediaPad, a 7-inch 1.2GHz dual-core Android 3.2 tablet.
The Huawei MediaPad could be the first tablet to run Android 3.2 and with specs that could match Samsung’s Galaxy Tab.
7″ IPS LCD capacitive display
Qualcomm SnapDragon 1.2GHz dual-core
8GB internal storage
up to 32GB via microSD
5MP autofocus camera
1.3MP front-facing camera
The MediaPad can also do 1080p Full HD video playback and promises up to 6 hours of battery life. Unfortunately, Huawei did not say how much the tablet would cost once it is released. Expect it to be launched in the Philippines too before end of this year.
More on this when I visit the Huawei booth at Communicasia on Wednesday.
