Huawei is claiming yet another first at Mobile World Congress 2012 today (27 February).
After unveiling ‘the world’s fastest quad-core smartphone’ the Ascend D Quad at MWC, it produced what it claims is the first ever 10-inch quad-core tablet.
Huawei Device chairman Richard Yu said: ‘Most consumers use tablets for entertainment purposes such as gaming, viewing multimedia content, browsing the internet and reading ebooks.
‘We have created the Huawei MediaPad 10 FHD to excel in all of the entertainment capabilities including speed, power, web browsing, high definition display and audio, and packaging it all in a compact and portable body.'
The Huawei MediaPad 10 features a 1.5GHz quad-core processor, Google's Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich operating system and a 10-inch IPS high definition display screen.
The tablet runs on Huawei’s proprietary 1.5 GHz K3 quad-core processor, the smallest quad-core processor in the industry.
Huawei said the tablet ‘leverages the K3 chip’s embedded GPU to provide incredibly fast processing power and 3D graphics processing capability, ideal for high definition video clips or large-scale 3D games.’
The Huawei MediaPad 10 FHD enables high-speed wireless access of up to 84 Mbps, while at the same time supporting a number of network standards including LTE.
The tablet boasts a high-definition 1920x1200 IPS display and also comes with a rear-facing eight-megapixel camera with auto-focus, a 1.3-megapixel front-facing lens for video calls and 2G of memory storage.
The unibody of the MediaPad 10 FHD is made of aluminium alloy materials and is slim and light at just 8.8mm thin and 598g.
The Huawei MediaPad 10 FHD will be available in the UK in Q2.
