Huawei MediaPad To Land On T-Mobile US, No UK Launch Date Yet

The Huawei Mediapad tablet has appeared on the FCC website in the US and will be launched on mobile network carrier T-Mobile.

Like many smaller tablets, the device sports a 7-inch one with a screen resolution of 1280x800 pixels but unlike say, the HTC Flyer or the Samsung Galaxy Tab, it comes with Android 3.2 Gingerbread.

Tech website, Droid-life, reports that the tablet - which was released in June 2011 - has been sighted on the website. It will come with a dual core Qualcomm Snapdragon system on chip clocked at 1.2GHz, a five-megapixel camera with AF and HD recording, a front facing camera, an HDMI port, 3G/HSPA+, Wi-Fi, 8GB onboard storage, a microSD card slot and six hours of battery life.

The tablet will go on sale at T-Mobile for $200 with a two year agreement. That's the same as the Amazon Kindle Fire although the latter doesn't come with 3G connectivity (although that can be solved using a MiFi device).

There are no release dates for the UK yet although we suspect that we shall see the device popping up towards the end of the year.

Desire worked at ITProPortal right at the beginning and was instrumental in turning it into the leading publication we all know and love today. He then moved on to be the Editor of TechRadarPro - a position he still holds - and has recently been reunited with ITProPortal since Future Publishing's acquisition of Net Communities.
