Huawei recently announced the MediaPad 7 Lite as a follow up to the moderately successful MediaPad tablet. This announcement comes right after the release of Google Nexus 7 and the upcoming release of four different Amazon Kindle Fire 2 models. The new MediaPad 7 Lite seems to allow people to make phone calls and send text messages, which are fairly common on 7” tablets released by Chinese companies. While international users can quite easily find tablets with voice call ability, it is not the case with US consumers; the Samsung Galaxy Tab 7 originally allows people to make a call, but it is removed on the T-Mobile, Verizon, AT&T and Sprint networks.
The Huawei MediaPad 7 Lite will come with 1.2GHz Cortex-A8 single-core processor, 7” IPS WSVGA (1024×600) display, 3.2Mp rear-facing camera, VGA front-facing shooter, 1GB of RAM, 8GB of onboard storage and Ice Cream Sandwich (Android 4.0). The tablet should be priced equal to the Google Nexus 7.
