In addition to its new K3 CPU and Ascend smartphone, Huawei announced a new 10-inch tablet that will feature the same K3V2 CPU, the MediaPad 10 FHD.
The MediaPad 10 FHD looks pretty decent and Huawei certainly didn't skimp on bold claims, telling the world that the MediaPAd 10 FHD is currently the fastest quad-core tablet. The new MediaPAd 10 FHD tablet is built around a 10-inch 1920x1200 226ppi IPS display and runs on previously detailed Huawei K3V2 CPU clocked at 1.5GHz. The CPU is backed by, what Huawei calls, K3 chip's embedded GPU, 2GB of memory and 8GB of storage space aided by microSD card slot.
The rest of the known specs include HSPA+ as well as LTE (possibly on a different model), 802.11bgn WiFi, 8MP rear snapper with autofocus as well as 1.3MP front one for video calling. According to the first hands-on (of an early sample) seen around the net, the MediaPAr 10 FHD actually looks quite decent with its aluminum unibody design, 8.8mm thickness and 598g weight.
The device will ship with Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich and should appear on retail/e-tail shelves in Q2 2012 with yet unknown price tag.
