Powered by Huawei's own K3v2 Cortex-A9 1.4GHz quad-core processor, the MediaPad 10 FHD packs a gorgeous full HD 1920x1200 IPS display with a 16:10 screen ratio, and Dolby audio technology. Huawei also promises a keyboard dock add-on for the tablet much in the same vein as Asus' Transformer Pad series.
The MediaPad 10 FHD is available now in China, and will begin shipping in selected European and Middle-Eastern markets in September. No word as yet on any UK or U.S. availability. The full press release can be found after the break.
