The low and mid-range tablet market is largely dominated by Android powered devices that are manufactured by a myriad of companies. Some of these tablets are only released in specific regions, whereas others are available in major markets such as the U.S. Huawei, a Chinese manufacturer, has now announced the MediaPad 7 Youth tablet that runs Android 4.1 Jelly Bean. Its a mid-range tablet with a decent power package.
The Huawei MediaPad 7 Youth is just 9.9mm thin and weighs 350 grams. It has an aluminium unibody design, upfront there’s a 1280×800 7 inch display, nothing too extraordinary. It has a 1.6GHz dualcore processor, presumably 1GB of RAM, Wi-FI and HSPA+. Powering it all is a 4,100 mAh battery. Huawei says that the tablet is “ideal for young people.” The company will be launching MediaPad 7 Youth this quarter in Europe, including Russia, as well as in the Middle East and Asia Pacific. China will obviously get the tablet as well. No word as yet on the possibility of it being launched in the U.S. No pricing details have been revealed just yet, but one can expect it to be well below $300.
