Huawei MediaPad 10 FHD – Upcoming Huawei Tablet
The Huawei MediaPad 10 FHD, simply means a 10” tablet with full HD capability. Running the latest Android version (Ice Cream Sandwich), it boasts some impressive specs. The MediaPad 10 FHD is powered by Huawei’s proprietary 1.5GHz quad-core K3V2 processor, which is also used on the Ascend D Quad. It directly competes with another quad-core tablet, the Asus Transformer Prime with Nvidia Tegra 3 chipset.
At 1920 x 1200 pixels, the 10” IPS display has one of the highest resolutions in the industry; at 226 ppi pixel density, object are displayed crisply. As a comparison, the 9.7” iPad 2 has 1024 x 768 pixels resolution with 132 ppi pixel density. The 32-bit graphics engine allows hardware-intensive games to perform well on the slate. At 8.8mm, the tablet is as thin as the iPad 2 and thanks to the aluminum-alloy frame, it still feels remarkably sturdy.
Like the Ascend Diamond, the MediaPad also offers the Dolby-surround technology. Overall, the higher audio detail and better depth allow for more immersive experience.
Huawei may leave you scratching your head by incorporating a proprietary connector. Most users would rather to use a standard micro-USB slot, which allow them to use compatible 3rd party chargers. The MediaPad 10 FHD also lacks the MHL-HDMI (Mobile High Definition Link) technology that’s used on Ascend D Quad. The metal unibody also seems to fail to stand out among the competition and it’s reminiscent of the HTC’s unibody design, used in the One X. Pricing isn’t revealed yet, but the tablet will start shipping somewhere in the middle of 2012.
