Huawei announced yesterday, that the Huawei MediaPad will be one of the first tablets pre-loaded with Ice Cream Sandwich. These tablets were first launched back in June of 2011, and were the first 7-inch tablets running Android 3.2. Looks like now, Huawei is upping the ante and getting the tasty dessert for a better tablet experience.
Huawei also unveiled its new MediaPad color series. The MediaPads will come in three new colors: shadow black, classic brown, and passion pink and running on Android 3.2. Each MediaPad will sport a high-quality display, with screen resolution of 1280 x 800 pixels at 217 PPI and supporting 1080P Full HD video playback. Added to it, they come with a Qualcomm dual-core 1.2 GHz processor and have a battery capacity of six hours or more.
“In a tablet market defined by staid black and white tablets, the new colorful MediaPad offers a personalized look without the need for an external case,” said Richard Yu, Chairman, Huawei Device. “With a hardware package that includes a high-quality screen, a powerful dual-core processor, and long battery life, these colorful MediaPad embodies a rare combination of style and performance.”
So it looks like the Colored series MediaPads and the MediaPad with Android 4.0 will be available in selected markets in the first quarter of 2012. For those of you that already have this tablet will receive an OTA ICS upgrade by the first quarter of 2012.
