Huawei introduces quad-core 10 inch tablet with 1080p display

Huawei is showing off a new 10 inch Android tablet with a quad-core processor and high resolution display at Mobile World Congress this week.

The company mentioned the new tablet as a footnote in its press conference, which suggests the Huawei MediaPad 10 FHD tablet isn’t as important to the company’s strategy as the new Huawei Ascend D line of smartphones.

But the folks at The Verge got a chance to check it out in person, and confirmed that the tablet has some pretty top-of-the-line features, including:

  • 10 inch, 1920 x 1200 pixel display
  • Huawei K3V2 quad-core processor
  • Case that’s just just 8.8mm (0.35 inches) thick

The tablet supports 4G LTE mobile broadband and runs Google Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich software.

There’s no word about the price, but the tablet will reportedly ship during the second quarter of 2012.

    Now we are talking.

    They only need a battery-extending keyboard dock to become a direct competitor to the Transformer Prime.

    Would be nice to know about the GPU. If it is not some standard stuff (like the Mali 400 or PowerVR) then this device may not be easily supported by custom ROMs or Ubuntu for Android.
