Huawei MediaPad confirmed for AT&T at "affordable price", 4G and all
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.

It's apparently lacking an LTE module, since the press release states in a footnote "4G speeds delivered by HSPA+ with enhanced backhaul",  but the company is already updating its MediaPads with Ice Cream Sandwich, so that's the good news. The Huawei MediaPad for AT&T will ship with Honeycomb at first, though, and work its way up from there.

If you are into lame commercials, the MediaPad's first official one is hard to beat, so we couldn't resist embedding it below.

Hahaha, it really is, but that Huawei is no joke. Huawei is gonna be strong on tablet market, because of it's low price, and good quality tablets (and also phones). One of the best 7" tablets yet made. Gonna buy one, as soon as i can :).

That was probably the dumbest commercial that I've ever seen!
