Hands on with the Huawei MediaPad X1 (video)

HuaweiHands on with the Huawei MediaPad X1 (video) e-Reading Hardware showed off their latest 7" tablet at Mobile World Congress, and Charbax was there to get it on film.

The MediaPad X1 is running Android 4.2.2 on a quad-core 1.6GHz CPU with 2GB RAM, 16GB Flash storage, a pair of cameras (13MP and 5MP).

It sports a 7" 1920×1200 resolution display, and according to Huawei the 5Ah battery offers 20-25 hours run time before it needs to be recharged. At just 7.8mm, this is one of the thinner tablets on the market. But with a weight of 239 grams it's not the lightest. That's a hefty battery inside the tablet, and it adds weight, but given that this tablet has an LTE chip in addition to Wifi I think the battery is worth it.

Retail is going to be 399 euros, and if that translates one for one to dollars then the MediaPad X1 is probably out of my price range.

Nate Hoffelder is the founder and editor of The Digital Reader:"I've been into reading ebooks since forever, but I only got my first ereader in July 2007. Everything quickly spiraled out of control from there. Before I started this blog in January 2010 I covered ebooks, ebook readers, and digital publishing for about 2 years as a part of MobileRead Forums. It's a great community, and being a member is a joy. But I thought I could make something out of how I covered the news for MobileRead, so I started this blog."
