7-inch Huawei Honeycomb tablet with 4G support headed to T-Mobile

Back in June, Huawei announced what was then the world’s first tablet to run Android 3.2 Honeycomb. Although we’ve yet to see it launched anywhere yet, and Android 3.2 is a common sight on other tablets right now, so that momentum was certainly lost.

Not that the MediaPad isn’t an interesting device. And now it looks like T-Mobile is getting ready to sell a version of this tablet tailor made for its network in the USA. TmoNews has received shots of an upcoming 7-inch tablet which is T-Mobile branded and purportedly made by Huawei.

The rumored specs are pretty much aligned with those of the MediaPad. It will have a dual-core 1.2 GHz processor, a 7-inch 1280×800 touchscreen, 16 GB of internal storage space built-in, Adobe Flash support, two cameras, 4G, and a 4,100 mAh battery. It will (obviously) run Android 3.2 Honeycomb.

The interesting thing here is the rumored pricing of this tablet. Apparently T-Mobile is considering selling it for just $199.99 with a new two-year data contract. That’s a price that we’re used to seeing smartphones retail for, so if TMo pulls this off it may just have the best selling tablet of any carrier. But that remains to be seen, as pricing hasn’t been finalized yet, it seems. Fingers crossed.
