Huawei unveils MediaPad M1 tablet with 4G LTE and SMS messaging (hands-on)

BARCELONA, Spain -- Can't decide whether to buy a new phone or get a tablet? With the Huawei MediaTab M1, that might not be an issue. It's an 8-inch Android tablet, but its SIM card slot allows it to not only take advantage of 4G LTE data speeds, but also lets it make calls and send SMS text messages, as though it were a regular phone.

It has a 1,280x920-pixel resolution, a 1.6GHz quad-core processor and comes running the now rather old Android 4.2.2 Jelly Bean. Huawei hasn't said exactly how much it will cost, but based on the middling specs, I wouldn't expect it to cost much more than £200 when it goes on sale in the UK in March.

Huawei has yet to announce wider availability.
