It seems fair to assume most manufacturers are currently (or at least should be) working on updates to Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich for most of their recent devices. This should come as no surprise for the most part and today we are seeing a few leaked images from the Huaewei MediaPad rocking ICS. This should make that budget tablet much more exciting — that is for sure.
The MediaPad has been available from T-Mobile for some time and is being called the Springboard Tablet with Android 3.2 Honeycomb. The possibility of soon getting an alpha ICS build right from Huawei sure sounds nice and I’m sure more than a few owners agree. The image above shows the MediaPad being graced with the frosty and frozen Ice Cream Sandwich we’ve all come to love and expect.
The MediaPad is available in China and other parts of the world but currently only available in the US as the T-Mobile Springboard. We’ve seen a few FCC filings that suggest an AT&T HSPA+ version is en route but that remains to be seen. While Huawei hasn’t released any details or a promise to update to Android 4.0 this should make a few owners happy and give some reassurance.
We reviewed the T-Mobile version and were mildly pleased although the hardware was quite nice, this update should bring that tablet to life. Who agrees?
