Huawei MediaPad world's first Android 3.2 Honeycomb tablet

Huawei is to launch the world's first Android 3.2 device in the form of the 7-inch Huawei MediaPad

Huawei has officially announced it is to launch the world’s first Android 3.2 Honeycomb tablet by unveiling the 7-inch dual-core Huawei MediaPad.

Lining up at just 10.5mm thick, the Huawei MediaPad is to offer an alternative to Apple’s formidable iPad 2 with the device’s 7-inch form factor to pack a 1.2GHz Qualcomm dual-core processor, and a 5-megapixel rear mounted camera with HD video recording capabilities.

Boasting Huawei’s Hi-Space cloud storage solution the Huawei MediaPad is to be the world’s first device to come sporting version 3.2 of Google’s tablet-centric Honeycomb OS. Touting the same set of features as Honeycomb 3.1, 3.2 will be the first rendition of Honeycomb to be attuned specifically for 7-inch devices.

“The 7-inch tablet remains the preferred size for portability and Android Honeycomb 3.2 is dedicated to enhance the full potential of 7-inch tablets,” announced Victor Xu, Chief Marketing Officer of Huawei. He added: “Huawei is very pleased to be the first to offer this package to consumers globally.”

“With the Huawei MediaPad, we are demonstrating yet again that design, functionality and performance is within anyone’s reach. The MediaPad opens up new worlds of entertainment for consumers by removing the barriers to tablet ownership, enabling access to a truly high-quality mobile entertainment experience fully integrated with cloud-based internet content.”

Set to host 3G and Wi-Fi connectivity options as well as a HDMI connector, the Huawei MediaPad will touch down in the US in Q3 with a UK release date and pricing information to follow.

Can Huawei’s 7-inch Honeycomb tablet take the lead in the 7-inch tablet market or will all tablets pale to Apple’s iPad offerings? Let us know what you think via the T3 Twitter and Facebook feeds.
