As cruel as this is, Huawei only allowed a glimpse of their 10.1-inch version of the MediaPad tablet. They teased everyone on the floor by saying it's a quad-core slate with a 1080p (1920 x 1200) IPS display that can easily match the iPad 3. Run, ASUS Transformer Prime!
Jokes aside, the MediaPad 10.1 uses the same Huawei K3V2 processor to hum along coupled with 2GB of RAM. At the back we find an 8MP camera with 1080p video recording abilities.
Storage is just 8GB, but don't despair, there's a microSD card slot on board. As you'll see from the photos below, the MediaPad 10.1 is quite slim held in the hands of the beautiful Huawei model.
The MediaPad weighs 598 g and is 8.8 mm thick and is encased in an aluminum unibody.
Connectivity options include LTE and HSPA+, probably in separate variants depending on the market.
The MediaPad will be globally available to users in Q2 of 2012.
