We reported about ten days ago that Chinese handset maker Huawei silently launched the MediaPad 7 Lite tablet in India.
The slate has been up for pre-order since then, but starting today customers will be able to grave the MediaPad 7 Lite for Rs 13,700 (255 USD or 195 EUR). Check it out here
Although the tablet is delivered with Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich operating system out of the box, there's a high chance Huawei will offer a Jelly Bean upgrade in the following months.
However, we don't have any confirmation from Huawei on this one yet, so stay tuned for more updates on the matter.
The MediaPad 7 Lite is Google-certified, which means it provides access to almost 700,000 apps and games via Google Play store. In addition, it comes with Google full suite of services, including Maps, Search, Gtalk, YouTube and more.
Unlike the 10-inch MediaPad that comes equipped with a dual-core processor clocked at 1.2 GHz, the smaller version is powered by a 1.2 GHz single-core CPU. Still, both tablets pack 1GB of RAM and 8GB of ROM.
It is also worth mentioning that MediaPad 7 Lite
features microSD card slot for memory expansion (up to 32GB), along with a high-capacity 4100 mAh Li-Polymer battery.
Keep in mind that this is a tablet with support for GSM voice
communication, which means users will be able to make and take calls if they insert a SIM.
The 7-inch IPS LCS capacitive touchscreen display supports 600 x 1024 pixels resolution and 262k colors, while the 3-megapixel camera on the back features HD (720p) video recording.
It also comes with a secondary VGA front-facing camera for video calls, as well as SRS sound enhancements for a richer audio experience.
Huawei MediaPad 7 Lite offers a wide range of connectivity options, including HSDPA and HSUPA, as well as Wi-Fi, DLNA, Bluetooth and microUSB.
