With Huawei promising an August release date for the MediaPad 10 FHD, it looks like the company is staying right on schedule, as the tablet was just seen passing through the FCC and cleared all the necessary inspections, making the device ready for consumer consumption.
This 10-inch slate hasn’t been shy about flashing its specs since first appearing on the scene at Mobile World Congress 2012. The MediaPad10 FHD will sport an impressive 1920 x 1200 display, and will be powered by Android 4.0 (Ice Cream Sandwich). Said to be packing Huawei’s own quad-core K3, 1.5 GHz quad-core processor with a 16-core GPU and 2GB of RAM, the tablet will feature an 8-megapixel rear-facing camera, as well as a 1.3-megapixel front-facing shooter. The Android tablet will have 4G LTE while coming in at just 8.8mm thin and 598 grams.
Huawei plans to offer a clip-on keyboard and trackpad that will transform this tablet into a small laptop.
Keeping a veil of ambiguity, Huawei has not mentioned its exact plans regarding sales of the tablet, staying silent on whether the MediaPad 10 FHD will be offered through a carrier or strictly through electronic vendors. The former might be beneficial to Huawei, as the company has not been established as prominent as brand such as Apple or Samsung among U.S. consumers.
While Huawei announced last month that the device will ship sometime in August, the company has remained mum on an exact launch date, with the FCC approval being the only sign that we could be seeing this tablet very soon.
