MediaPad will be the smallest form factor Tegra 2 powered tablet for media on the go

Typically known for entry to mid-level smartphones, Huawei is quietly working on its first Android Honeycomb tablet. The unnamed slate will reportedly feature either a 1.5 GHz dual-core Snapdragon or a Nvidia Tegra 2 chip processor.

Beyond the lighting quick chip, the Huawei tablet will run Android Honeycomb (3.x) and feature a 7-inch display running at a resolution of 1280 x 800 . Normally a 7-inch display would not receive much fanfare, but considering the resolution matches 10-inch competitors, this is no small feat.

For now the slate called “MediaPad” will be lightest and smallest tablet with its specification. It comes with WiFi, 3G, Bluetooth and a web cam as a standard. Stay tuned for an official announcement of pricing. But our hope is that this tablet will be much less priced than equally equipped tablets from other makers to give them a run for their money.
