Huawei debuts devices and tablet/smartphone bundle on Talktalk Mobile

Huawei will sell the Ascend Y210 and the G510 smatphones as well as the MediaPad 7 Lite tablet via TalkTalk but the offers will only be available to the customers of this mobile virtual network operator. Unlike Virgin Media, TalkTalk doesn't actually sell to anyone who is not one of its existing services customer (either on phone or broadband), a strategy, which is on the whole, puzzling.

The Y210 is an entry level device that comes with a 2-megapixel camera. You can find more about it here. As for the Ascend G510, it comes with a dual-core SoC from Mediatek, 512MB of RAM, a large 4.5in 960 x 540 pixel display, a 1,750mAh battery, Android 4.1 Jelly Bean, Emotion UI and a 5-megapixel camera. You can check out our hands-on preview of the Ascend G510 smartphone here.

The third device on offer is the MediaPad 7 Lite which is a tablet that comes with a metal unibody shell, a Cortex-A8 based SoC clocked at 1.2GHz, a 7in IPS display, HDMI out, Android 4.1 Jelly Bean, a weight of 370g, a rear 3.2-megapixel camera, a 0.3-megapixel front facing one and 512MB of RAM.

The Ascend Y510 is available from as little as £5 per month on a two year contract with the G510 costing twice that sum. Talktalk Mobile will also bundle both phones with the Media 7 Lite which will add £10 per month to the monthly outlay.

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.
