The Huawei MediaPad 10 FHD supports both quad-core speed and LTE connectivity
Back in the waning days of February, during the MWC, the Huawei MediaPad 10 garnered a lot of attention. And why not? The tablet features a 10.1 inch display with resolution of 1920 x 1200 and has Huawei's very own quad-core K3V2 processor under the hood. Toss in LTE connectivity, Android 4.0, a thin 8.8mm chassis and you have the makings of a winner. The Huawei MediaPad 10 FHD supports LTE connections as fast as 150Mbps which is compatible to an 84Mbps HSPA+ connection, and the 8MP camera on the tablet captures video in 1080p. We could, and will, mention the 2GB of RAM on board and the 6600mAh battery that provides up to 10 hours of talk time.
Back in July, Huawei released a video of the tablet and at same time, hinted at a price of less than 3,000 Yuan which works out to about $471 USD. Obviously, Huawei is moving away from the low priced category where the Google Nexus 7 and the Amazon Kindle Fire dwell. And the good news is that the Huawei MediaPad 10 FHD is now available in China and will be launched this month in Germany, Sweden, Russia, Belarus, Korea, Bahrain, and Kuwait. Other markets, as they say, "will follow".

I wonder how there own designed quad core processor is compared to the others in the market. Does anybody know what arm architecture it incorporates. Is it based off of the Krait design or a older design. This sounds like a great tablet. They should price it at $400 dollars in the us to even have a chance here though. Market is getting really competitive
Yep, Huawei is a company besides Asus and Apple that i put my faith in, they should rise their market share - it is kinda pathetic, to be honest. Their tablets are impressive both specs- and expierience-wise and get vanilla Android updates.
Only thing that bothers me here is the 8 GB storage.
