Huawei MediaPad T3 7.0 goes on sale in the US for just $89

Huawei introduced its new MediaPad T3 lineup of tablets last month and promised to bring them to market in the coming weeks. Out of the three new Android slates announced by Huawei, only one is now available for purchase in the United States.

Major retailer Walmart is now selling the Huawei MediaPad T3 7.0, but customers will only be able to pick it up at brick and mortar stores. The affordable tablet is available for purchase for just $89, but it does not feature GSM compatibility.

The MediaPad T3 7.0 is an ultra-light tablet featuring a slim metal chassis, and a 7-inch IPS display with 1024 x 600 pixels resolution. Connectivity-wise, the tablet comes with Bluetooth, Wi-Fi and microSD card support (up to 128GB).

On the inside, the tablet packs a 1.3GHz quad-core MediaTek MT8127 processor, 1GB RAM and 16GB of internal memory. Huawei's slate features a 2-megapixel primary camera and similar secondary camera on the front side.

Huawei MediaPad T3 7.0 runs Android 6.0 Marshmallow with EMUI 4.1 on top, and it's powered by a 3,100 mAh battery. It will probably be offered by other retailers in the US very soon, but for now, Walmart seems to be only one to sell Huawei's cheap tablet.

I don't need flagship specs but can anyone release a decent small tablet these days? Seems they all have the absolute worst specs imaginable.

yah, something like 2gb/16gb/1280x800/quadcore should be the minimum...they need to get rid of the 1gb/8gb/1024x600 devices.

My thoughts exactly on what entry level specs should be, I feel this tablet would struggle to browse the web much less do anything useful.

I could understand needing something better for an adult, or even a teenager. But for a child, it's just fine. I'm thinking of picking one up for the kids, just something to use in the car on road trips. Especially at that price. They can play their games or watch netflix. It's perfect for that.

I don't think there is a reason to get this over the Fire tablet or the Nook tablet. Both are cheaper with similar specs.

how about for Play Store support over Amazon app store? I think that's a huge win. Youtube kids isn't available on the fire tablets along with many other things. Making this a good kids tablet.
