Chinese handset manufacturer, Huawei is planning to launch a low cost version of its MediaPad tablet. To be called as MediaPad 7 Lite, the tablet is expected to compete with other low cost tablet counterparts like the Google Nexus 7 and the Samsung Galaxy Tab 2 7.0. The pricing details however are not available but the company might soon reveal the details about the pricing of the device.
Huawei had announced its entry in the Indian tablet market last year with the launch of the MediaPad tablet. Although internationally several other models of Huawei tablets were made available, India only got the MediaPad.
The MediaPad 7 Lite features a 7 inch display with a 1024 x 600 pixel resolution, a front and rear camera capable for high definition recording. The tablet is powered by a 1.2GHz Cortex A8 architecture based dual core processor, 1 GB of RAM and comes with 8 GB of internal storage. The operating system chosen by the company is Android 4.0 with expected upgrade to Android jelly bean 4.1 too.
Similar to the earlier MediaPad, Huawei has given this tablet a metal unibody to give it rich looks and strength. Along with this MediaPad tablet will feature integrated 3G with calling capabilities. For connectivity, the MediaPad 7 Lite has b/g/n wireless, Bluetooth 3.0 and a 4,100 mAh battery for decent backup time as well.
