Look who’s preparing to enter the tablet market? It’s Chinese Huawei, which will reportedly unveil a new product to the media on June 20th, before showing it to the rest of the world at the CommunicAsia 2011 show.
Details are super-scarce at the moment with the Chinese company only referring to it as the “next-generation smart device” which is “smallest” and “lightest” tablet released so far. In other words, the forthcoming MediaPad will most likely come with a 7-inch screen though we don’t have that confirmed. Likewise, we only assume it will run Android Honeycomb but again have no official words to put behind the claim.
One thing is certain – it’s good to see Huawei joining the market. The Chinese company is still best-known for its low-end handsets, even though it has released few Android smartphones. Hopefully with the MediaPad launch, they’ll show us they can also make a decent tablet. Can’t wait.
