Huawei MediPad 7 Vogue tablet hits the FCC, on its way to store shelves?

Chinese device maker Huawei’s next 7 inch tablet is expected to be called the Huawei MediaPad 7 Vogue. The company hasn’t officially announced the tablet yet, but the tablet earned DLNA certification a few months ago.

Now the MediaPad 7 Vogue is continuing its tour of regulatory and certification agencies. This weekend it showed up at the FCC website.

The Huawei MediaPad 7 Vogue has the makings of a low-cost Android tablet, but one with optional 3G and 4G capabilities.

The tablet expected to have a 7 inch, 1024 x 600 pixel display, a 1.5 GHz ARM Cortex-A9 quad-core processor, 1GB Of RAM, and Android 4.1 Jelly Bean software.

It supports WiFi and Bluetooth, and features HDMI and DLNA. There’s also a microSD card slot.

A few years ago, those would have been amazing specs for an Android tablet, no matter what price tag it carriers. But these days you can get some pretty nice 7 inch tablets for well under $199, and word on the street is that the next Google Nexus 7 could have a higher-resolution 1920 x 1200 pixel display.

So if Huawei tries to sell the WiFi-only version of this tablet for more than $149, it could have a tough time finding buyers.

    The resolution kills it for me, you can’t even browse the Web comfortably.

    I’m pleasantly surprised by the hardware and software quality of my rather cheap Ascend Mate, so I’ll be watching Huawei closely though.

    That resolution is just plain skimping on the display and giving the GPU less work to do to make it look stronger.

    It would have to be 99 dollars to compete with the Sero 7 LT from Walmart.
