The 10‚ Huawei Mediapad, unveiled at Mobile World Congress in Barcelona yesterday, runs on Google Android 4.0 and is their first tablet from the Chinese giant powered by a quad-core processor.
At the Mobile World Congress in Barcelona yesterday, Huawei introduced its first 10-inch quad-core tablet. The Huawei MediaPad 10 FHD is a fast-performing tablet with powerful audio-visual entertainment features, including a Huawei 1.5GHz quad-core processor, Google Android 4.0 operating system and a 10‚ IPS high definition display screen.
‚Most consumers use tablets for entertainment purposes such as gaming, viewing multimedia content, browsing the internet and reading e-books,‚ said Richard Yu, Chairman of Huawei Device. ‚We have created the Huawei MediaPad 10 FHD to excel in all of the entertainment capabilities including speed, power, web-browsing, high definition display and audio, and packaging it all in a compact and portable body.‚
Huawei claims it is the world’s first quad-core 10‚ tablet. However, other manufacturers have also released or announced quad-core tablets in the format, most notably Asus with its 10.1‚ Transformer Prime, while ZTE yesterday announced the 10‚ PF100 running on quad core.
However, Huawei may be within their rights to claim the MediaPad 10 FHD is the fastest quad-core tablet available. Running on Huawei’s proprietary 1.5 GHz K3 quad-core processor, the smallest quad-core processor in the industry, the Huawei MediaPad 10 FHD leverages the K3 chip’s embedded GPU to provide incredibly fast processing power and 3D graphics processing capability, ideal for high definition video clips or large-scale 3D games. The Huawei MediaPad 10 FHD enables high-speed wireless access of up to 84 Mbps (HSPA+ 21/42/84Mbps), while at the same time supporting a number of network standards, including LTE.
Boasting the industry’s highest screen resolution and high-definition 1920 x 1200 IPS display that supports multi-touch, its colorful and clear display gives users a cutting edge visual experience. Huawei MediaPad 10 FHD uses Dolby surround sound technology and offers a quality experience for users when playing games, watching HD movies and listening to music. The Huawei MediaPad 10 FHD is also installed with an 8 megapixel rear automatic-focus camera and a 1.3 megapixel front-facing camera and memory storage of 2G RAM, making it easy to record and store high-definition photos and videos.
Huawei says the MediaPad 10 FHD follows the design principle of all Huawei’s products: ‚elegant, simple and easy to use‚ . The uni-body of the Huawei MediaPad 10 FHD is made of aluminum-alloy materials, providing a glossy and light finish. The tablet is 8.8mm thin and weighs only 598g which makes it convenient to use and carry.
The Huawei MediaPad 10 FHD is the fourth generation tablet from Huawei following after the S7, S7 Slim and MediaPad (Android Honeycomb). Huawei MediaPad 10 FHD will be available for global markets in the second quarter of 2012.
