Huawei has already brought a basket-full of goodies to CES 2012, showcasing some interesting new devices like the Ascend P1 and Ascend P1 S. And it is certainly not going to stop with the innovations now, not when the Mobile World Conference (MWC) is just a few days away in Barcelona.
Huawei’s Chief Marketing Officer, Yu Chengdong, released an official statement regarding the company’s plans for MWC. In it, some eagle-eyed folks found some information hinting to the release of the Huawei’s 10-inch tablet called the MediaPad. Things were starting to get interesting.
10″ Huawei MediaPad to join Android’s fight against iPad
And now, just a few days away from the beginning of this global event in Spain, some pictures of the new devices have found their way on the web. The 10-inch MediaPad is looking mighty interesting, judging from the pictures. If you ask me, it’s somehow similar to the HTC Flyer, specially the back.
Yes, looks are important and might motivate some customers to buy the product, but brains are part of the deal as well. And this new gadget is certainly not going to be missing in that department, we hope. It’s supposed to come packed with:
- The latest Android 4.0, Ice Cream Sandwich
- 8MP rear camera
- Front camera (details missing)
- 3G connectivity
- microSD expansion card slot (details missing)
Just by looking at these specifications, I’m already longing to hear more. But so far, there are no details about the processor and memory. Huawei hasn’t really established its brand in the United States yet, but it’s surely working on it. At the Mobile World Congress it is also expected to unravel Ascend D1 Q from the Huawei Diamond series. Again, not many details are known about the device but reports seem to indicate that the D in the name stands for Diamond (as compared to P in Ascend P1 that stands for Platinum), while Q stands for Quad Core.
If you don’t know, Huawei is a multinational networking and telecommunications equipment and services company based in Shenzhen, Guangdong, China. Despite being the largest Chinese supplier in the business and second largest supplier of mobile telecommunication equipment after Ericsson, it is still trying to get a grip on the US market. We’re pretty sure the MWC will help the company to achieve just that. And we’ll gladly welcome their MediaPad in our collection of mysterious Android tablets.[via] Cnet
