Cast your minds back to March 2013, and you might recall Huawei’s grand plan for taking over the tablet market was 4G. “Put the power and the speed that we can put into these devices and you open up a different world,” said some guy.
Flying in the face of that pledge, the brand new 3G-ready Huawei Honor Tablet is incredibly modest (don't expect much in the way of "power" or "speed"), with a suitably low price tag. Time changes, changes e-very-thing.
Diving straight into Huawei Honor Tablet specs, we have an 8in display (1280 x 800), quad-core Qualcomm Snapdragon 200 processor clocked at 1.2GHz, and 1GB of RAM.
Huawei Honor Tablet camera juice comes in at 5MP on the rear, while the front houses a VGA shooter. Incredibly, the tablet rocks not KitKat but Android Jelly Bean (yep, it’s September 2014; no need to refresh your browser).
In terms of storage, the Huawei Honor Tablet comes with 16GB, and the saving grace is that it offers microSD compatibility (er, up to 32GB). The 4,800mAh battery should keep the thing ticking over for a decent amount of time, too.
To be fair, the Huawei Honor Tablet is aimed initially - and probably primarily - at the Malaysian market, and they’re reportedly quite keen on 3G-friendly slates over there.
As for Huawei Honor Tablet price, it’ll set you back 599 Malaysian Ringgit, which translates into roughly £112. Don't hold your breath for a UK release though.
