Huawei’s MediaPad gets an FCC teardown, appears headed to AT&T
Huawei’s MediaPad made another appearance on the FCC today, this time sporting the GSM and WCDMA bands used by AT&T in the United States. According to FCC test reports, the device won approval for GSM 850 and 1900 bands and WCDMA bands II and V, unlike previous versions of the device which offered support for T-Mobile’s WCDMA band IV.
FCC filings also include a host of internal pictures of the MediaPad. We get a close view of the device’s 4000 mAh battery, as well as its Qualcomm processors and Samsung SDRAM. Some reports indicated that the MediaPad relies on an NVIDIA Tegra2 processor, but the Qualcomm logo is visible on what appears to be the device’s CPU.
The 7-inch MediaPad is a Android 3.2 Honeycomb tablet that features a 1280×800 screen, front (1.3MP) and rear (5MP) cameras, a 1.2GHz dual core processor, 1GB of RAM, 8GB of storage, WiFi and Bluetooth.
The MediaPad is expected to launch in Europe for around £275. We don’t have word on any official carrier support in the US yet, but today’s FCC filing is a good sign that Huawei does plan to bring the MediaPad to the States.
