On MWC 2012, the Huawei MediaPad 10 FHD Android tablet was spotted on parade by a model, and today the Chinese manufacturer has decided to release more details about the tablet. Launching the tablet at the Mobile World Congress 2012, it is said to be the world’s first 10″ quad-core tablet (which is a weird claim to make since there’s already a 10″ quad-core tablet called the Transformer Prime). Regardless of whether it is first or not, it is still an impressive device that deserves your attention.
The MediaPad 10 FHD is a 10.1-inch tablet designed for the high-end segment of the market. The device is very thin, at only 8.8 mm – the kind of slim profile that you expect to see from a well-made tablet nowadays. It's also very lightweight with its 598 g. In terms of build quality, the MediaPad 10 is nothing special, although it doesn't feel cheap at all. The only problem that we see with the design is that it reminds us too much of the Galaxy Tab 10.1. So, that's one area where we'd definitely like to see some improvement.
The MediaPad 10 FHD features Huawei’s own 1.5GHz quad-core processor, Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich, the resolution of the 10.1" display is incredibly high – 1920x1200 pixels. Indeed, the pixel density is pretty high, and even the smallest of details are very fine, easy to see on the display, HSPA+ 21/42/84Mbps and LTE support, Dolby surround sound, an 8-megapixel rear camera, and a 1.3-megapixel front facing camerea, and 2GB of RAM.
