  Huawei’s ‘iPad Killer’ MediaPad 10 FHD Tablet May Launch in Late August For Less Than $500

Huawei-MediaPad-10-FHD1
It’s no secret that Android tablet sales have lagged far behind Apple’s iPad. The reason? Price and user experience. Some 10-inch Android tablets cost as much as an iPad, and some of them are painfully slow when it comes to gaming and multitasking. Apparently, Huawei’s upcoming quad-core tablet MediaPad 10 FHD would be something different. It will be powered by a 1.5GHz quad-core processor along with 2GB of RAM, and it will be available for sale in late August for less than $500.

A two-year-old little boy from Hangzhou city, East China’s Zhejiang Province has just given a nice ‘Apple’ haircut by his parent. The boy shows off his eccentric hairstyle with the Apple logo on his head. The young mother said it’s an easy job for this kind of haircut because she used some special modeling tools while shaving the boy’s hair. We are not too sure whether Apple will sue the little boy for illegally using their company logo on hair styling …

But the stupidest thing is this internship program is a compulsory curriculum. Students would NOT be permitted to graduate if they don’t participate the work experience.
