The Eagle is a re-branded Huawei MediaPad. It has a quad-core processor.

There's space for a SIM card, and a microSD card.

It runs Android 4.3 Jelly Bean, which sadly isn't the latest version.

It's reasonably slim, as you can see.

The 8-inch display has a pretty shoddy 1,280x800-pixel resolution.

The Eagle goes on sale on 28 May, and will cost £199 on pay as you go.

This is the EE Buzzard. It plugs into your car's cigarette lighter and floods your vehicle with 4G Wi-Fi.

It comes in this handy container, which EE says is designed to fit in cup holders.

This is the EE Osprey, a portable hotspot that's both colourful, and chunky.

The EE Kite, meanwhile, is more expensive, and aimed at professionals who need 4G while out and about.

The Kite is impressively slim, and bears a striking resemblance to an iPhone 4, albeit one with no screen.
