Have you never heard of Chinese manufacturer Huawei? Well today they released a tablet that will likely put them on your radar. They announced the MediaPad, which is actually the world’s first tablet running Android 3.2 Honeycomb. This 7 inch tablet also happens to be their smallest an slightest tablet yet. The device sports a 7 inch IPS capacitive touchscreen and measure just 0.4 inches thin and weighs 0.86 pounds, while packing in a 1.3MP front-facing camera, and a 5MP rear-facing camera with auto-focus and HD video recording. Under the hood, it has a 1.2GHz Dual-Core Qualcomm processor powering it all. The MediaPad is also able to playback 1080p video, it has HDMI out, and it sports a 6 hour battery life, along with support for HSPA+ and Wi-Fi N.

These aren’t bad specs at all. As for its design? Well it is pretty good looking, but more or less it looks like every other tablet. Pricing and availability is  not known so far. And a 10 inch model is also in the works. Either way it is good to see that Honeycomb 3.2 is starting to get out there, we just hope that tablets like the MediaPad are priced more competitively than their Samsung and HTC counterparts.
