has unveiled a new tablet ahead of MWC 2011, a slimline follow-up to its previous S7 budget slate. The Huawei S7 Slim has not been specified as yet - though we can see what looks to be a front-facing webcam - but we're guessing it's simply a thinner version of the 7-inch we looked at back in November. That's a good thing, as while the S7 was reasonably specified, it was also pretty heavy; hopefully the Slim version will have shed some grams too. Android Community will be at Mobile World Congress next week, so we'll be bringing you back all the details on this new entrant to the slate segment. [gallery] [Thanks Carl!]

A few new videos have popped up that show the new model preforming multitouch gestures. The videos include a promotional and a hands-on video with the new tablet that are showing off the multitouch of the device. Although the multitouch doesn't look fully implemented, or even ready for release, this confirms that they are at least working on a capacitive touch version of the S7.

back at Computex earlier in the month, it's good to see that it's back, and in the best capacity it could be: for sale. That's right, if you're a lucky enough to be across the pond, or want to import something, then you can order your very own 7-inch capacitive touchscreen tablet, running Android 2.1, with a screen resolution of 800 x 480.
