Some images have surfaced of what looks to be Huawei’s 7-inch MediaPad tablet. According to TmoNews, this tablet is destined for T-Mobile as a 4G slate and could get its major unveiling during CTIA next month. The tablet was first announced back in June and although originally thought to launch in August, it’s been pushed back to October in Malaysia first and then worldwide before year-end.
The Huawei MediaPad features a 7-inch IPS WVGA 1280x 800 pixel resolution display and runs Android 3.2 Honeycomb on a 1.2GHz dual-core processor. It sports a 1.3-megpixel front-facing camera, a 5-megapixel rear-facing camera with autofocus and HD video capture, and it comes with Flash 10.3 support and 16GB internal storage, expandable with microSD card slot.
What’s interesting is that there’s a possibility that the Huawei tablet’s price could be competitive with the recently announced Amazon Kindle Fire. That means you’d get the added hardware components like dual cameras that the Kindle Fire is missing on a similar 7-inch form factor at the same $199 price tag. But for the Huawei tablet, that price will require a new two-year data contract.
