Huawei is joining the likes of Asus and Samsung with a tablet that can take phone calls. The Honor Tablet has been unveiled in Malaysia, and aside from allowing its owners to talk with it, it also offers the “regular” tablet experience.
Priced at the equivalent of $184, the 7.9mm-thin slate rocks an 8-inch 1280×800 pixels screen, Qualcomm’s quad-core Snapdragon 200 chip clocked at 1.2GHz, 1GB of RAM, 16GB of internal storage and a pair of cameras: 5MP on the back and VGA front-facing one. There’s also a 4,800 mAh battery that should keep the lights on, as well as HSPA+ and Wi-Fi connectivity options. Android 4.3 is running the show with Huawei’s own Emotion UI 1.6 singing on top.
The Honor Tablet will debut in Malaysia on October 16th, and every 50th pre-order made through the VMall.my site can win users another Honor Tablet. Just in case they need two of these, you know. No word when this model will hit the West, and as far as we (don’t) know, it could be destined to few of the emerging market of Southeast Asia.
