Huawei MediaPad 10 FHD Review

Huawei MediaPad 10 FHD Review

If it were ever time for another Android tablet with a thin frame and a 10.1-inch display, it's now, and it's Huawei who's bringing this device into the world. Huawei makes a valiant effort at creating a tablet with the MediaPad 10 FHD, and it does indeed bring on an impressive package, especially for media playback. If you're looking for the most massively impressive tablet on the market - this isn't it - but if you do have this device on your radar and wonder if it's worth the cash, let me give you a spoiler: it's definitely nice to watch a movie on, but that's just about where it ends.

Clearwire chooses Huawei for LTE network

Huawei is a Chinese company that offers all sorts of hardware for mobile networks and other network systems. The Chinese company has been at the center of spying allegations made by the US government suggesting that Huawei may be allowing the Chinese government access to American network systems. Huawei continues to strenuously object to these claims and has offered access to its source code in an attempt to prove it's not facilitating Chinese spying on America.

A couple days later, Canada reconsidered using Huawei as part of its upcoming government communications network due to the concerns expressed by US lawmakers.

SlashGear Evening Wrap-Up: October 15, 2012

Welcome back to Monday everyone - we've got a heaping helping of news to recap, so let's dive right in. Today we found out that Apple's manufacturing partnership with Samsung may not last much longer, and that the Google Nexus 7 might just be the best-selling Android tablet ever (which, given its immense popularity, doesn't surprise us in the least). One Walmart store has its shelves fully stocked with copies of Windows 8, and this afternoon, we have reason to believe that a new, slimmer iMac may be in the pipeline.

Huawei Ascend D1 quad XL Review

Huawei Ascend D1 quad XL Review

With the Huawei Ascend D1 quad XL, the team brings us what at first appears to be a powerhouse of a smartphone with a giant battery to boot. As it turns out, the processor doesn't take down its competitors in Samsung, Qualcomm, or NVIDIA, but certainly does nice enough to keep up with them in many ways. You're certainly able to play high-powered games, videos play smoothly even at their highest of definitions, and the whole smartphone is easily Huawei's most powerful to date. The lack of uniqueness in the build of the device, on the other hand, should remind you of Huawei's competitors' devices from this past year - it's put us on guard right out of the box, but ends up proving to be far less important than the end product, which is great.

Huawei MediaPad 10 FHD hands-on and unboxing

This week we're having a peek at not one, but two Huawei Android devices with quad-core processors that are set to blast away the competition - or so it would seem. This is the Huawei MediaPad 10 FHD quad-core tablet with a 10.1-inch display that's high definition to the max - 1920 x 1200 pixels with a 16:10 aspect ratio on a chassis that just 8.8mm thin. The device is ever so slightly heavy at 580g, but the innards here make up for whatever's lost in heft.

T-Mobile Roadmap releases Windows Phone 8X on November 14th

Just incase you didn't know that the Windows Phone 8X was coming to T-Mobile, an alledged roadmap of the carrier's upcoming releases has made it clear. This roadmap from TmoNews also lists the LG Optimus L9 Android device, a Samsung Toba (possibly a tablet we've not heard of before), and a Dell BMW - this very likely being a laptop ready for action with Windows 8, starting up T-Mobile's laptop efforts again like AT&T is doing with their set of notebook releases. This list goes on as well, showing off a color refresh for the Galaxy S II and a BlackBerry Armstrong device.
