Huawei hasn't yet made a big splash in the U.S. (though that may be changing), and the Ideos S7 Tablet they're showing off at IFA 2010 doesn't quite look like it's going to change that. What's you're looking at is a 7-inch screen running with 800x480 screen resolution, Android 2.1, 3G, a fairly small 2200mAh battery, a front-facing 2mp camera, and the now de-rigeur ability to play back 720p video. The processor is the Qualcomm Snapdragon, there's 256 megs of RAM under the hood.
Huawei's custom skin isn't the most beautiful thing we've ever seen, but it does get points for usability: naming the different pages on their homescreen is a nice touch and we especially like the drop-down controls in the upper-righthand corner. A dual notification screen/task manager may bring back painful Windows Mobile memories for some, but the ability to quickly close or switch apps from a simple text list isn't anything to spit at as far as we're concerned.
