Deal: Amazon selling Huawei's iPad Mini competitor at 20% off

The Huawei MediaPad M3 hasn't been around for long. In fact, the slab only launched in the US last week as what many consider to be a decent Android-based competitor to Apple's stagnating Apple iPad Mini series. When a product gets launched, it usually maintains its original retail price for a few good weeks at least. As it turns out, however, that's not the case for the Huawei MediaPad M3, which Amazon is already selling at a discounted price.

You can get your hands on a Huawei MediaPad M3 from Amazon at $239. That's a $60 (20%) discount compared to the previous price and a great price give the M3's hardware specs. Although the tablet is available in both silver and gold, only the latter is available at this discounted price.

At $239, it's hard to find a better compact Android tablet than the Huawei MediaPad M3. The highlights of the slab include an aluminum body that only measures 7.3mm across the waist, an 8.4-inch display running at 2560 by 1600 pixels, a 2.3GHz octa-core processor paired with 4GB of RAM, and 32GB of expandable integrated storage. 

Other specs include a 5100mAh battery, as well as 8MP camera sensors on both the front and the back. Although the M3 is available in LTE-capable flavors in other regions, only the Wi-Fi model is available in the US. On the software side, the Huawei MediaPad M3 runs Android 6.0 Marshmallow with the manufacturer's own Emotion UI on top.

No removable battery (tablets can have them too), no cellular in U.S., and maybe backdoor spyware to China. No thank you. Will hold out for the next iPad Mini.

Your first criticism applies to the iPad mini as well. Not saying I'd get this, but if you're gonna compare things, don't bring up an issue that the device you're gonna go with instead has the same issue.

So you prefer backdoor to US? Well that's called a free choice.

3:4 screen makes no sense for small tablets. The point of small tablets is to hold them comfortable in one hand and carry them in big pockets or small hand-bags. If you should carry them in big bags anyway, it's better to carry bigger screen tablets. Right?

To me is more comfortable to hold in one hand in 4:3 format, and easier to read books and web pages. Yes, for movies and other stuff 16:9 is much better, that is why I like the galaxy s2 tab 8.0, the ipad mini or air and some others. I just think we should have the option to choose between 16:9 and 4:3 tablets, but I suppose is expensive to have two versions of the same 'model'.

First sentence: "The Huawei MediaPad M3 has been around for long." You mean NOT been around for long. Sloppy writing.
