Huawei introduces MediaPad 7 Lite mid-range tablet

With announcements regarding its high-end tablet out of the way, Huawei has also announced forthcoming availability of the brand new Huawei MediaPad 7 Lite. As the name implies, this tablet is seven inches in size and doesn’t pack quite the same punch as the MediaPad 10 FHD.

It sports a 1.2GHz ARM Cortex-A8 processor, and a 3.2 megapixel rear shooter. That is also accompanied by a VGA front-facing camera for video calling.

As for its resolution, the press release says we have a “1024 x 600 IPS multi-touch 1080p high-definition display,” so we can’t be too sure what that means just yet. We’ve reached out for clarification, but we’ll go out on a limb and say the former resolution is correct, as is common for this screen size, for the time being. Read on for full press details.

Huawei Unveils Ultra-Portable
Fashion-Forward MediaPad 7 Lite

Shenzhen, China, August 31, 2012 – Huawei, a leading global information and communications technology (ICT) solutions provider, launched the Huawei MediaPad 7 Lite, the latest addition to the Huawei tablet family. Ultra-portable and housed in an 370g sleek metal unibody shell, the MediaPad 7 Lite is powered by Google Android 4.0 and a Cortex A8 1.2GHz processor. Its super-clear 7-inch 1024 x 600 IPS multi-touch 1080p high-definition display is complemented by its 3G cellular voice function. The MediaPad 7 Lite will start shipping to South Africa, China, Russia, Philippines and Taiwan from end-August; Indonesia and Malaysia from September.

“Good things come in small packages. The MediaPad 7 Lite is our answer to consumers’ demands for a good-looking, portable high-performance tablet at a price that makes sense for them. The MediaPad 7 Lite is consumers’ perfect entertainment and communications companion,” said Richard Yu, Chairman of Huawei Device.

The MediaPad 7 Lite makes staying in touch easier with its 3G and WiFi cellular, SMS and MMS capabilities. It is compatible with nearly all multimedia formats and also features a 3.2 megapixel rear camera and a 0.3 megapixel front-facing camera.
