Huawei, the largest networking and telecommunications equipment supplier in China and is the second-largest mobile telecommunications infrastructure equipment supplier in the world (Ericsson is the first) will be launching their first Android Tablet sometime in August this year dubbed the MediaPad. The Huawei MediaPad is a 7 inch Android Tablet which will be running on Android 3.2 and most likely will be the first tablet to be running the latest version of HoneyComb in the market when it is launched in August this year.
Some of the interesting specifications for this 7 inch IPS panel capacitive multi-touch capable tablet includes a Dual Core 1.2 Ghz processor, a 3G USIM card slot, HDMI type D slot, built-in microphone and Micro USB support.

More details and a product demo video after the jump.
On the connectivity side, we have the standard Wireless 802.11 b/g/n support and/or HSPA+ for 3G connectivity. The MediaPad sports 2 cameras - 1.3 megapixels for the front facing camera and 5 megapixels with autofocus capability for the rear facing camera.
Other interesting specifications for the MediaPad includes a very thin and lightweight body, with the body of the tablet only being 10.5mm thick and weighs at 390g which makes this tablet very compact, lightweight and extremely practical to carry around with you everywhere you go. The battery life for the MediaPad is expected to provide over 6 hours of battery life which is powered by a 4100mAh battery. It also comes with an 8GB built-in internal storage and a Micro SD slot which can support up to 32GB of external storage.
At the moment there's no word on the pricing of the MediaPad yet but we'll be sure to let you know once we have any information on this. The MediaPad looks set to replace the first Android Tablet (and at the moment the only major 7 inch tablet around) to hit the mainstream market some time ago in the form of the 7 Inch Galaxy Tab and so far, this one looks like a winner judging on the specifications alone.
