A forgettable product. It isn't bad, exactly, but also doesn't do anything particularly well.

Huawei MediaPad 10 review: test-driving the company's first 10-inch tablet

Summary

Huawei's MediaPad 10 arrives too late with specs that have since been overtaken by rivals. Coupled with limited regional availability and prohibitive pricing, this is an ICS slate that's best overlooked.

More Info Huawei MediaPad 10 eyes-on Huawei MediaPad 10 hands-on (video) Huawei MediaPad 10 FHD hitting stores starting in September Toward the end of Huawei's Mobile World Congress press event this past February, company executives made a brief mention of an upcoming 10-inch, quad-core tablet. For the media in attendance, it was a coup d'oeil at best and a dangling hardware carrot, for sure. At the time, the company kept curious journalists at bay, but did confirm some high-end specs: a 1,920 x 1,200 IPS display, 8-megapixel rear camera, LTE (Cat 4) / DC-HSPA+ radios and a proprietary, quad-core K3V2 CPU buffered by 2GB of RAM. It wouldn't be until CTIA in New Orleans three months later when we'd actually get some hands-on time with device. Now that we're at the tail-end of the year and the MediaPad 10 is on sale in Europe, much of the buzz has evaporated in the wake of some high-profile product launches (think: Google's Retina-searing Nexus 10, or the recently refreshed iPad). But is there a reason to give the MediaPad 10 a second look anyway? Will a price of 424 euros and limited regional availability mar its chances in the marketplace? Answers to those questions and more after the break.
