Huawei MediaPad glides through the FCC on track for an August launch
Huawei announced last month that we can expect the device to ship sometime in August, and the FCC approval would line up with a release later this month, so hopefully we won’t have to wait much longer to get our grubby paws on one. For those of you who need something to distract yourselves with while you wait, or if you’re wondering what the hubbub is about, you can check out this two-minute video Huawei dropped on us last month as they try to stoke the flames of excitement ahead of the product launch:

On my list of Gadget to Get. Going to wait to see one or two reviews first, but this thing is shaping up to be quite a beast.

It'll have to be pretty good to beat Asus and its Transformer series. But then again, maybe I'm just an Asus fanboy. :P
EDIT: Holy crap, your avatar is just... mathematical.

That's my thinking, I'm holding off on the Infinity because of the 2 gigs ram in this thing, and how the quad cores stack up against each other. It is quite hard to beat Asus in the tablet sector.
Also: Thanks, I don't know if a 21 year old should be watching cartoon network but I just can't seem to help myself.

You will be probably be disappointed. Huawei is still learning the market and I recommend waiting until Huawei has more experience building these high-end devices under its belt.

Very nice tablet. Hopefully, this will give Huawei more "street-cred" here in the US. Pricing of both the tablet and the dock will be its key factor

You hit the proverbial nail on the head. Pricing is the key in order to compete with others and the 800 pound Gorilla (Apple) you must compete via pricing as Google did with the Nexus 7
If they can get something like this to be under 400 for Wifi only then they may have a good chance if not welcome to the club of tablets that won't make a dent in the market. and for Pete sake don't place it on a carrier as that only jacks up its price and it will compete poorly against the 800 pound Gorilla.

i think china wants to prove itself too much... i think lenovo meizu and huawei is a good contender... but ZTE.. specially the name sounds cheap!
