    Is it wrong that I noticed that typo as I thought it said something completely different

    the MediaPad could find itself a niche in the market under the current wave of nigh-indistinguishable 10in tablets that have flooded market recently, offering similar performance in a more compact frame.
    ... and hopefully a cheaper price!
    The aesthetics are fairly reminiscent of the iPad
    Don't say that - there's enough stupid legal actions around at the moment without having another suefest!

    Got a 7" tablet myself last week (HP Zeen) and even though it's pretty damned slow and doesn't have Android Market access, it's actually pretty usable. So I would assume that this Huawei device would be markedly better.

    As to the screen size - yes a 10" tablet would be far better for web-browsing, games and video. But the 7" is actually a nice size - bigger footprint than a "nickel n' dime" paperback, but smaller than an O'Reilly reference book, and very good as an eBook platform (if, like me, the page refresh on eInk displays annoys). Fits into a bag or desk drawer very nicely.

    Just hope they can get the price right - there's Elonex and Advent 10" tablets for < £200 so I'd hope the Huawei was, at worst, the same price, and hopefully cheaper.

    Career status: still enjoying my new career in DevOps, but it's keeping me busy...
