Huawei MediaPad X1 is a skinny, Full HD 7-inch slate

Mobile
I'm Andrew Hoyle for CNET, and I'm here with the Huawei MediaPad X1. It's a 7-inch tablet, but it has a SIM card slot that lets you make 3G calls or send SMS texts so that you would be forgiven for thinking that it's a phone. Now, 7 inches, it might be too big to realistically work as a phone, but we have seen some pretty big devices that do blur the line between phone and tablet before. It has a slim metallic body which is comfortable to hold, easy to slide into a jacket pocket, and I actually think it looks rather nice as well. The 7-inch screen has a full HD resolution and it seems easily [unk] enough for you to enjoy some Netflix shows. It's packing a 1.6 gigahertz quad-core processor and it's running Android 4.2 Jellybean. Now, that is quite an old version of Android, but Huawei has put its Emotion UI over the top so that you might not notice that you're running old software. You also get an 8-megapixel rear camera, a 5-megapixel front-facing camera for all those great selfies. You also get a 5,000 milliamp an hour battery inside and a microSD card slot to expand the 16-gig of built-in storage. There's sadly no word on pricing for Huawei yet, but we are expecting to hear more, but it goes on sale in the second half of the year. Huawei has said it will be coming to the UK, but wider availability is yet to be announced, but make sure to keep it CNET for all the latest news. I'm Andrew Hoyle and this is the Huawei MediaPad X1.
