Huawei launched their tablet that will compete the Samsung Galaxy Tab, but with an Android Honeycomb 3.2 OS , Definitely this unit will defeat the Galaxy Tab because of it’s specification.
Huawei MediaPad Specifications:
- Android Honeycomb 3.2 OS

It is great the the unit have a Dual-core 1.2GHz Qualcomm processor, but of course great power consume more battery. Wifi only version will surely come out soon. I have not seen the release date and cost of this unit. But definitely it will just compete with the price range of Samsung Galaxy Tab.
But will this unit compete with other leading brand in the market like Motorola Xoom, Acer Iconia and Blackberry Playbook.
The Chinese company says that the memory can be upgraded further via a micro-SD card slot.
The Huawei MediaPad also features Bluetooth, 802.11n WiFi and GPS support. MediaPad is said to measure 10.5mm thick and weighs 390g.
