Huawei drops MediaPad 7 budget tablet

Huawei Media pad7.jpgHuawei has just dropped what looks like a rather interesting new tablet. The MediaPad 7 Youth, is as you’d expect a seven inch tablet aimed at a younger audience but its has a rather striking looking aluminum metal unibody which is both skinny and light.

Spec-wise it isn’t bad either,. You get With a 7-inch capacitive 10-point touchscreen, 1080p full HD video, a 28nm dual-core 1.6GHz processor and a sizeable 4100mAh Li-Polymer battery.

It will connect to HSPA+ (up to 21Mbps) and Wi-Fi connections, and like other Huawei tablets also offers voice calling.

I guess this is the company’s rival to the incoming Samsung Galaxy Mega series of tablets/phones.

“The MediaPad 7 Youth is a versatile tablet that provides an unsurpassed experience across hardware and software,”said Wang Yinfeng, Vice President, Home Connected Device Product Line, Huawei Device. “Ideal for young people who are always on the move, the MediaPad 7 Youth delivers on Huawei’s promise to make extraordinary technology experiences accessible for all.”

It will be on sale in the UK in a couple of months time. No clues as to what the price will be.
