The Huawei MediaPad was quite the interesting device when we first got wind of it, so we have been watching it closely ever since. However, all the news we had so far was a promise to ship soon and a leaked T-Mobile device. Now, thanks to the FCC, we have a confirmation that there is in fact a T-Mobile MediaPad in the works, and that it will finally be arriving in the US sometime soon.
As a reminder, the MediaPad will be sporting a 1.2GHz processor, 7-inch 1280 x 800 display, dual cameras, and HDMI, as well as the latest Android 3.2 Honeycomb. In addition, this T-Mobile destined version will have both 3G and HSPA+, as well as a tweaked version of Android that we saw in the last leak.
Probably the best feature of the T-Mobile device is that it will be available for a mere $200 on contract, much less than the $500 asking price. Although it obviously includes a contract, it puts this powerful device in the range of devices like the Kindle Fire and other budget tablets with lower specifications. Overall, it looks like the MediaPad will be a pretty good deal when it is finally released for the US.
Until then, you can take a look at the rest of the FCC images below the break.
