Huawei MediaPad

The Huawei MediaPad has been available at T-Mobile under the SpringBoard name since late last year, and now it looks like the slate will be headed to another major U.S. GSM carrier's shelves. It's been revealed that the MediaPad will be landing at AT&T tomorrow, February 3rd. The announcement says that the slate will be available to enterprise users "at varying price points depending on the business account," but it makes no mention of if or when the AT&T MediaPad will be available for regular consumers like you and I. Those of you that do qualify as an AT&T enterprise customer can expect the following specs from the MediaPad:

  • 7-inch 1280x800 touchscreen
  • 1.2GHz dual-core Qualcomm SnapDragon processor
  • 5-megapixel rear camera, 1.3-megapixel front camera
  • 1080p video capture
  • HSPA+ connectivity
  • Android 3.2 Honeycomb

The MediaPad may not be the freshest Android tablet, but hey, we're not ones to complain about having more choices when it comes to buying a new slate. Here's to hoping that AT&T's MediaPad is made available to non-business customers soon, especially since there aren't any 7-inch Android tablets currently available on the carrier's website. Would any of you be interested in picking up an AT&T MediaPad if it were made available to consumers?
