China’s Huawei appears to have some new versions of their MediaPad 10 FHD 10-inch tablet set to be released in the near future. According to NotebookItalia, at least three different model numbers have surfaced at the WiFi Alliance and Bluetooth SIG sites. The models – S10-201W, S10-201U and S10-202U – have all received WiFi certification. Details are still sketchy, but it appears the 201U and 202U versions probably contain antennas for 3G and 3G/4G connectivity.

Dubbed the MediaPad 10 Link, the devices do appear to possess the MediaPad 10 FHD’s 10.1-inch IPS LCD HD display. NotebookItalia compared images of the new device with the MediaPad 10 FHD and noted some very minor variations in the cases. The question remains as to whether the new devices are low-cost alternatives Huawei is trying to bring to market or the next evolution of the MediaPad 10 FHD. Perhaps we will find out during CES 2013.

Huawei MediaPad 10 FHD Will Be Shipped In September, Come Fully Loaded With Quad-Core Processor And 16-Core GPU

Chinese manufacturer Huawei has a new supertablet on the way. It recently announced it has plans to ship the MediaPad 10 FHD to “select markets” starting in September. The tablet comes with a whole host of goodies inside as it will feature:

 

  • A 10.1-inch 1920 x 1200 high definition IPS display screen and 16:10 golden ratio
  • 8 megapixel HD rear camera + 1.3 megapixel front-facing camera
  • Ice Cream Sandwich
  • Full 3G & 4G LTE radios built-in

 

While the above mentioned features are nothing to sneeze at, the real kicker is it will feature a quad-core processor along with a 16-core GPU. The K3v2 Cortex-A9 will be clocked at 1.4GHz and when complimented by the device’s massive 6,600mAh battery, the combination will give users over 10 hours of continuous battery life. Oh and the best part is all the goodies inside don’t come at a cost of added heft— the device will measure in at 8.8mm thin and will weigh only 580g. Sadly the device will not be making an appearance here in the States (as of now) and will be launched in Germany, Sweden, Russia, Belarus, Korea, Bahrain and Kuwait. The good news is that other markets will follow, so the hope is that Huawei will announce a variation for the States someday (soon).

Enough with the chit-chatter, you can hit the break to see the full presser from Huawei.
