Huawei announces 10″ MediaPad FHD update

Our favourite Chinese tech company has another announcement to go alongside the thrilling new Ascend D Quad from yesterday, today revealing a larger version of its MediaPad tablet. The new 10″ MediaPad FHD model is powered by the same Huawei-made 1.5GHz quad-core processor the company is putting in the new Ascend, with a high screen resolution of 1920×1200.

Android 4.0 is the OS, with dual cameras (8MP and 1.3MP) and 2GB of RAM onboard. It’s quite the monster. Here’s Huawei’s first official press shot:

Q2 of 2012 is when Huawei says the MediaPad FHD should see a global launch. The original 7″ MediaPad was a little hard to get hold of in the UK, until Orange snapped it up and started selling it on contract as the Orange Tahiti. Here’s hoping the 10″ model also makes it to the UK in some way.
