Huawei has taken the wraps off of its MediaPad tablet, the first 7-inch slate to run Android 3.2 Honeycomb. According to Huawei, Android 3.2 basically fettles Honeycomb to suit the 7-inch slate, which also comes with HSPA+ 14.4Mbps connectivity, WiFi b/g/n, an IPS capacitive touchscreen display and HDMI Full HD 1080p output.

Inside there’s Qualcomm’s 1.2GHz dual-core processor – presumably the same chip as inside the HTC Sensation – along with an unspecified amount of RAM, 8GB of internal storage and a microSD card slot. There’s also Bluetooth, GPS and twin cameras: 5-megapixels on the back, with autofocus and HD video recording, and 1.3-megapixels upfront, for video calls.

At 11.98mm thick and 390g it’s reasonably compact, and Huawei reckons the battery is good for up to 6hrs runtime.¬†Facebook, Twitter, Let’s Golf and Documents To Go will be preloaded, and Flash Player 10.3 supported.

No word on pricing at this stage, and Huawei apparently has no plans for a WiFi-only model. US availability is tipped for Q3 2011.
