Huawei is showing off a new 10-inch Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich tablet with a quad-core processor and high resolution 1920 x 1200 pixel display at Mobile World Congress this week. With Apple expected to soon take the wraps off an iPad 3 complete with “Retina” 2048 x 1536 resolution, it would seem Huawei is also set to make display quality a top priority going forward.
UPDATE: Hands-on video!
Called the MediaPad 10 FHD, the device is seriously high end. At a mere 8.8 mm (0.35 inches) thick and weighing at 598 grams, it is as thin as Apple’s iPad 2, but weighs lighter. It has a 10 inch, 1920 x 1200 pixel display that’s capable of displaying every single pixel of a 1080p HD video. The tablet will have 2GB of RAM, and Huawei’s K3V2 1.5GHz quad-core processor that outguns Nvidia’s quad-core Tegra 3 processor. What’s more, the tablet supports 4G LTE mobile broadband (max speed is 84Mbps), boasts a 8-megapixel rear camera with LED flash, micro SD card slot, and runs Android 4.0. More photos of the tablet below.
Although the device is still in its early stages, but the guys over at electronista found the hardware to be extremely fast on both devices, easily handling interface transitions and maintaining high frame rates when running games. For the appearance, the tablet looks like an iPad from the front, but looks like a Galaxy Tab from the back. There’s no word about the price, but the tablet will reportedly ship during the second quarter of 2012.
