The first time I saw that title, I suddenly had a case of dyslexia and thought that said Android 2.3. We haven’t even heard that Android 3.2 was coming, but there have been rumors that as of right now Honeycomb is not able to work on tablets smaller than the usual 10″ screen size. Supposedly this update to Honeycomb will be optimized for those smaller screens, which leads way to Huawei’s announcement of the MediaPad. The tablet will sport a 7″ screen cased in a 10.5mm shell, and will be powered by a dual-core 1.2GHz beast from Qualcomm. Other specs include a 1.3MP front-facing camera, a 5MP rear camera, WiFi, GPS, 8GB of internal storage (plus sd card support), and a battery life good for up to 6 hours. Also interesting to note is that Huawei has no plans of making a WiFi only model for this, so you will need to pay extra for that 3G/4G radio.
As of right now there is no pricing or set release date on the tablet, but if everything stays the course we should expect the MediaPad to arrive sometime in Q3 of this year. Is anyone keeping there eye on this?
