Huawei MediaPad 10 Features Full HD Screen

Huawei CEO Richard Yu had a bit of a Steve Jobs moment at the end of the company’s press conference at Mobile World Congress 2012 by announcing “one more thing.”

The “thing” in question was the Huawei MediaPad 10, but unlike the former Apple CEO, Yu failed to give us much more details about the new tablet. The MediaPad 10 as you can infer from the name, will have a 10in Full HD screen with a resolution of 1,920×1,200.

The tablet, which will be running Android 4.0 (Ice Cream Sandwich) and will be powered by the new K3 quad-core processor running at 1.5GHz which we saw earlier in the Huawei Ascend D quad. The tablet will also come with an 8 megapixel camera and will be as thin as the company’s new flagship phone at just 8.8mm.

While the company has one of these tablets on show in Barcelona, it is one specifically made for the show and we don’t expect to see this high-end tablet in shops any time soon. As such, there are no details yet about when this tablet will go on sale, where it will be available or how much it will cost.

Is this a challenger to the iPad or the Transformer Prime? Or will it depend on pricing? Let us know your thoughts in the comments below.
