It supports 1080P full HD video playback and features a 1.3 megapixel front facing camera and 5 megapixel auto focus rear facing camera with HD video recording capabilities. With HSPA+ 14.4Mbps and high-speed WiFi 11n Internet connectivity, the MediaPad doesn’t just entertain – it keeps you connected.

Few months before Huawei announced to launch its smart phones and tablets in Pakistan. Dai Shengawei, Huawei Regional President for Middle East in an interview with a local newspaper said, ““We believe this is the perfect time to enter the smartphone and tablet market in Pakistan, because the market is relatively new in the region and majority of the products are targeted towards the highend price point,“ adding, “We see that there is a huge market that is eager to enjoy the added value of an innovative smartphone at an affordable price.

The company actively participated in ITCN Asia 2011  held in Karachi (20-22 September) and put their products on display. Luckily, I got a chance to play with MediaPad there and found it just perfect to be my first Android Tablet. The marketing representative said that the sale centers will be opened by October 2011 in Karachi.
