Huawei has recently announced a new mid-range 7 inch tablet model that at first glance you may think is just like any other 7 inch tablet out in the market today. The company has included a voice calling feature in the 3G model which isn’t common and is great to use if you don’t mind having a large object plastered to your head. There’s also a Wi-Fi only model available.
Huawei CEO Richard Yu announced in a press release “Building on the popularity of the HUAWEI MediaPad series, we’ve created a new tablet that caters to fashionistas, technology seekers, entertainment junkies, and people who simply expect more from their technology. We’re delighted to introduce the MediaPad 7 Vogue, our call-enabled tablet with world-class entertainment capabilities and long-lasting battery power. The MediaPad 7 Vogue is a perfect example of Huawei’s dedication to making extraordinary experiences possible.”
