Huawei has announced that new MediaPad tablets with Ice Cream Sandwich pre-loaded will reach select markets this quarter, while the existing users will also get the OTA update around the same time.
Company has not given any exact time-frame for the update, but this quarter isn’t that long. Huawei has also announced MediaPad in new color versions – shadow black, classic brown, and passion pink. These versions will come with Android 3.2 pre-installed, so you will have to update them to ICS once released.
“In a tablet market defined by staid black and white tablets, the new colorful MediaPad offers a personalized look without the need for an external case. With a hardware package that includes a high-quality screen, a powerful dual-core processor, and long battery life, these colorful MediaPad embodies a rare combination of style and performance.”
– Richard Yu, Chairman, Huawei Device
To remind you, MediaPad comes with 7 inch IPS display, 1.2GHz dual core processor, 5 MP rear camera with HD support, 1.3 MP front cam and 4100 mAh battery.
