3G Capable Huawei S7 Android Tablet Down To £180

The Huawei Ideos S7 tablet (£179.99 at Expansys) is one of the cheapest 3G tablets on the market, which allows you to browse the internet wherever you are, assuming you have 3G access via a data SIM.

It runs on a Qualcomm Snapdragon processor clocked at 768MHz with 256MB RAM and a resistive 7-inch WVGA display, something that might turn off a few potential customers.

Other features include the Android 2.1 Eclair OS, a SIM card slot for 3G access, a two megapixel rear camera and a 0.3-megapixel front-facing one, a kick stand (ed: why do so many 7-inch tablets come with a kickstand?), Wi-Fi, Bluetooth, a 2200mAh battery, a microUSB port and an array of sensors.

A Wi-Fi only version is also available for £150 but we would consider it a poorer choice. 3G tablets allow users to roam around more freely (especially when on the move) and compared to a Mi-Fi/Wi-Fi combination, they are less cumbersome and last for longer.

Huawei will probably introduce new tablets, including the followup to the Ideos S7, at the Mobile World Congress event which will take place at the end of this month in Barcelona.

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.
