China based Huawei is working on an Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich update for its MediaPad tablet. Chinese website CNMO claimed to have images of the Huawei MediaPad running Android 4.0 ICS alpha build. By default, the 7 inch display Huawei MediaPad tablet runs Android 3.2 Honeycomb tablet operating system.
Launched earlier this year in June, the power-packed Huawei MediaPad features a dual core mobile processor with promising hardware and is available in India at an approximate price of Rs 28,000.
Huawei MediaPad tablet shook the tablet segment back in June with its dual core 1.2 GHz mobile processor. Featuring a full touch 7 inch Glare IPS LCD display, the MediaPad supports 1280 x 800 pixel resolution natively. This tablet boasts of having the industry’s first 217 ppi density display.
At the rear, this tablet has a 5 megapixel camera with autofocus and the ability to record 720p HD video; while on the front is a 1.3 megapixel camera capable of recording 720p HD video as well. Packing WiFi (802.11 b/g/n) and Bluetooth capabilities, this tablet also supports HSPA+ networks and promises 14.4 Mbps speeds.
Clearly sporting a powerful suite of internal hardware, Huawei MediaPad certainly remains a strong competitor amongst feature rich tablets. With the advent of Android 4.0 ICS, Huawei has a good chance to earn brownie points for being the first with that update in the tablet space.
As of now, there is no information on the exact date on which Android 4.0.1 Ice Cream Sandwich update for Huawei MediaPad can be expected.
