New Huawei Android 3.2 Tablet: Distinct Qualities

The tablet market is forever changing and one key player that seems to be a persistent favorite is that of Apple’s iPad 2. Ok, so there are plenty of others to enlighten you but a new tablet from Huawei is on its way with one special feature that outweighs all the competition.

We are talking about the inclusion of Android’s 3.2 Honeycomb OS, which as Engadget pointed out will make it the first of its kind. The tablet named “MediaPad,” will consist of a 7-inch display making it smaller to that of the iPad 2’s 9.7-inch but a little heavier than that of the new Galaxy Tab 10.1. Internally and externally, you can expect to find a Qualcomm 1.2GHz dual-core processor, 5MP rear camera with HD video recording, 1.3MP front-facing camera, 1080p full HD video playback, HSPA + 14.4Mbps, WiFi, Bluetooth, social networking connectivity, 6 hours of battery life and so on.

In a statement from Chief Marketing Officer for Huawei “Victor Xu” he said, “With the Huawei MediaPad, we are demonstrating yet again that design, functionality and performance is within anyone’s reach. The MediaPad opens up new worlds of entertainment for consumers by removing the barriers to tablet ownership, increasing access to a truly high-quality mobile entertainment experience fully integrated with cloud-based internet content.”

The tablet is yet to be showcased but suggestion is that the MediaPad will show up in America sometime within Quarter 3 of this year. Pricing is yet to be confirmed but may be a little aggressive with news that the new Huawei will not be released as a WiFi-only model.

What are your thoughts on yet another tablet? Is there enough room to place it somewhere in the current market? Would you be tempted with the new Android 3.2 OS?
