CHINESE TELECOM SUPPLIER Huawei is offering a quad-core 10in entertainment tablet.
The product has appeared at Mobile World Congress (MWC) and tips up in an excited press announcement where we learn that it is the world's first 10in quad-core tablet.
Exciting, unless of course you have the Asus Transformer, which is a quad core tablet but has a 10.1in screen, or ZTE's just announced quad-core Tegra 3 tablet, the ZTE PF 100, which also boasts a 10.1in display.
Back in the world in which Huawei exists, the Mediapad 10 FHD has Google Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich and some other shiny features that should appeal to consumers.
"Most consumers use tablets for entertainment purposes such as gaming, viewing multimedia content, browsing the internet and reading e-books," said Richard Yu, chairman of Huawei Device.
"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."
Later in its statement the firm seems to acknowledge that there is competition, adding, "The Huawei Mediapad 10 FHD is the fastest quad-core tablet available," and justifying this with the explanation that it uses its 1.5GHz K3 quad-core processor to boost games and video performance.
The Huawei Mediapad has 2GB of RAM, a high-definition 1920x1200 IPS display, an 8MP rear automatic-focus camera and a 1.3MP front-facing camera. µ
