Huawei gave a select crowd of journalists and bloggers a sneak peek at their newest product for the Philippines — the Huawei MediaPad. The MediaPad is a 7″ Android 3.2 Honeycomb tablet that’s 10.5mm thin and weighs in at 390g (0.86 pounds). Huawei promised a very affordable price point but they declined to give actual figures during their press launch earlier.

The HSPA+ compatibility is a very welcome feature. SMART has been aggressively rolling out their HSPA+ network through their SMART Bro Rocket brand. I definitely see this as a great productivity tool for people in Digital Marketing and Community Management.
