Pretty average it may be, but it does come in gold

Huawei has introduced its latest Android tablet, the awkwardly named MediaPad 7 Youth2. And, while it does come in everyone's new favorite color, gold, it's a distinctly average looking tablet.

Despite the name, there isn't anything obviously youth-oriented about the tablet. It packs a mediocre sounding 1024x600 resolution display over a 1.2GHz quad-core CPU and 1GB of RAM. Internal storage is a lowly 4GB, though it does have microSD card expansion. Software is handled by Android 4.3 Jelly Bean and Huawei's own Emotion UI. It has two cameras, but they're nothing to shout about, with 3MP round the back and a 0.3MP shooter on the front. 

The party piece of this latest 7-inch Android tablet though is that it's also a phone. Unlike ASUS' Fonepad line, the MediaPad 7 doesn't look to have an actual earpiece, but it is a fully functional phone, with HSPA data connectivity. There isn't any pricing or availability right now, but you'd have to hope that it'll be priced in the budget price range. Even then, it'd be a tough sell.

Average. Go-hum. The only thing worth nothing is the back seems nice-looking.

The back of it kind of looks like the back of the gold Iphone 5S.

It may have ho hum specs, but the Peoples Liberation Army loves the spy photos it takes. Seriously, Huawei has been shunned by most western governments because they're a front for the communist dictators of China.


Apple somewhere waiting to file that law suit...
