Well, would you look at that! It's the MediaPad, a 7-inch Honeycomb-running tablet from the folks over at Huawei. Obviously, this is a device we're going to be paying very close attention to in the Fall when it's to be released. It's important to note now, however, that the MediaPad is running Android 3.2, which Huawei says is built specifically for 7-inch tablets. So forget about all of that "10-inch screen for Honeycomb" junk.
Huawei really went all out with its MediaPad, giving the device some absolutely killer specs to keep up with the competition. On top of a 1.2GHz dual-core CPU from Qualcomm, the MediaPad touts a very high-resolution screen, a 5MP rear camera, a 1.3MP front camera, HDMI output, 802.11n connectivity, and 8GB of internal storage. There will also be versions with 3G, but no details about carrier partners have been revealed.
There is no doubt that the MediaPad is exactly what a lot of you are looking for. I'm pretty certain that it's a dream for some other Pocketables editors, as well. I can't wait to check it out later in the year.[Engadget]
