Huawei's new MediaPad 7 Youth2 is a Samsung Galaxy Tab3 Lite competitor
Like the MediaPad 7 Youth launched last year, the new model has a metallic frame, and a 7-inch display with 600 x 1024 pixels. It runs Android 4.3 Jelly Bean with Huawei’s Emotion UI 1.6, further featuring HSPA+ (21 Mbps), Wi-Fi 802.11b/g/n, A-GPS, a 3MP rear camera, VGA front-facing camera, 1GB of RAM, 4GB of internal memory, MicroSD card support, and a 4,100 mAh Li-Po battery helped by “Huawei’s patented power-saving tech and the Dynamic Power Management system.”
Huawei says the processor inside the MediaPad Youth2 is a quad-core 1.2GHz MSM8x12 A7 - which likely means it’s a Qualcomm Snapdragon 200 (either the 8212, or the 8612 model).
With these features, the Huawei MediaPad 7 Youth2 will give Samsung’s latest Galaxy Tab3 Lite a run for its money. We could even say that the Youth2 looks a bit better on paper, specs-wise. The Galaxy Tab3 Lite should cost around $130, and we’re guessing that Huawei won’t ask more for its new tablet. The Chinese company hasn’t announced when and where it intends to launch the MediaPad 7 Youth2, but we’ll likely hear more on this soon.

There are so many choices offered to us consumers. I wonder if it is a good or bad thing?

I'd say it's a good thing. While a vast array of choices can be harmful (especially if most of those choices are decent at best), I feel a consumer's confidence and satisfaction with their device makes all the difference. I still have a Galaxy Tab 2 7.0, and while there are plenty of superior 7" tablets on the market, I still make the best with what I have; not everyone has it in their budget to replace a tablet every year or so.
Make a choice, and do what you can to get some good mileage out of it. Even if there was a better choice you could have made, there's no need to let it frustrate you.

What about after sales support, Upgrades and turn around times for repairs and replacement parts ? These are the typical questions people ask about chinese products. Even IF (Remember IF) they are way better that Samsung, Apple or LG people don't buy them in a hurry. Samsung has a typical turn around time of around 1 week for major repairs here. Will Huawei be able to better that ??? Please done say that it wont need repairs cos every manufacturer has faulty units in a batch.

Huawei has dealer support in most Asian countries , but its not that good for people in the west , as Huawei is usuallly frowned upon for being a Chinese OEM

Samsung Galaxy Tab 3 7.0 and Lite killer! But what about Huawei's high end tablet?
