Huawei S7 gets previewed: multimedia good, battery bad? [Video]

Huawei's S7 Android tablet - slotting neatly in-between the Dell Streak and the Apple iPad - has been previewed briefly ahead of its launch in the UK later this month, and we have to say the coverage leaves us in two minds about the 7-inch slate.  For a start, the capacitive touchscreen we've seen before was replaced by a resistive panel in the preproduction units tested (as by  Zol.com.cn) and Onliner.by aren't too keen on how the custom UI has been left more appropriate for either screen size or touch-technology.

The 845 hardware is apparently the handiwork of Huawei, with the phone being otherwise known as the Joy.  It won't be the first time we've seen a Huawei Android device attempt to take a bite out of the entry-level market; the company are responsible for the T-Mobile Pulse, a budget Android smartphone though with a 3.5-inch touchscreen rather than the Vodafone 845's compact panel.

Palm for sale tip insiders: HTC, Lenovo, Dell & others in running
