BARCELONA, Spain -- The Huawei MediaPad X1 is a 7-inch tablet with a skinny metal frame, a full-HD display, 4G LTE connectivity and can make calls and send SMS messages, exactly like your phone. It's due to go on sale in the UK later in the year, although Huawei wouldn't say how much it'll cost, or where else it was be available.

It's very slender. You certainly won't struggle popping it into your jacket pocket.

Huawei has popped its Emotion UI over the top of Android though so it's not immediately noticeable that it's an old version of software.
