Huawei SmaKit S7 stars at Computex with 1GHz Snapdragon and Android 2.1


We have previously been impressed and looking forward to the unusually named Huawei SmaKit S7 tablet already shown running Android 2.1 last month. Following the initial low-key period after its original announcement at the Mobile World Congress, Huawei appears to be ramping up the anticipation in the lead up to the S7's eventual launch with its latest appearance at Computex. The big questions surrounding the device have always been the final specifications and the identity of the processor, but a bit more information has been revealed because of its appearance at Qualcomm's booth being a hint. We now know that the S7 is powered by a 1GHz MSM8250 Snapdragon CPU, the same headlining chip as found in the Nexus One, HTC EVO 4G, and upcoming Dell Streak. This is really great news and makes the tablet look even more compelling than before. But apart from that gem, the company did not release any new details.

It seems that the reception of the device at Computex has been extremely positive with Engadget citing it as one of their favorite tablets at the show, and Carrypad's Chippy calling it the best Android tablet he has seen at the show so far! With its impressive mix of features and connectivity, slick design, decent size, and powerful hardware, we are also very much looking forward to its release. Are you also excited to get your hands on the SmaKit S7? Let us know in the comments and check out some more new images and a video after the break.
