The budget MediaPad T1 from Huawei sports a slim profile and a polished silver backing.
Though it launched globally last year, the Huawei MediaPad T1 tablet is now available through the mobile company's online store portal and e-commerce giant Amazon. It is selling for $189 (£120 and AU$232, converted) unlocked.
The device sports a sleek metal trim and a soft silver aluminum backing.
The tablet measures 8.29 inches tall and 5.02 inches wide (210.6 x 127.7mm), and has a slim 0.3-inch profile (7.9mm).
On the front of the MediaPad T1 is a 0.3-megapixel shooter.
The rear houses an 5-megapixel camera.
The device runs a rather dated version of Google Android's mobile
operating system -- 4.3 Jelly Bean (as of now, Google has released version 5.0 Lollipop and later updates).
Layered on top of the Android OS is Huawei's Emotion
user interface, which comes with different display themes to choose
Other features include 1GB of RAM, 8GB of onboard memory, and up to
32GB of expandable storage. Users can find the microSD card slot on the edge of the tablet.
In addition to being Wi-Fi enabled, the device is equipped with 2G and 3G
connectivity, so you can input a data SIM card from a network provider.
Though its specs aren't top-of-the line, the MediaPad T1's clean design
and sub-$200 price tag gives it the potential to be a decent budget
tablet. Check out more of CNET's tablet coverage here.
