Huawei's press release is light on pricing details, but it does announce that its MediaPad 7" tablet will be available today for AT&T's "enterprise users" (you know who you are), so we'll probably know more about the costs later on, depending on the uses' accounts tier. This tablet is known as the Springboard on T-Mobile, so we can expect similar performance and functionality.
The Huawei MediaPad is with 7" IPS-LCD display with 1280x800 pixels, powered by 1.2GHz Qualcomm Snapdragon chipset, has 5MP rear camera plus a front-facer, and is 0.41" thick, so it seems like a decent offering hardwarewise.
