The Mobile World Congress is on and we are sure to see some of the highly awaited devices in the mobile computing devices category, especially tablets. Amongst this, China-based Huawei is one manufacturer which is busy showing off its two brand new 7-inch Android tablets- the Huawei Ideos S7 Slim and the Huawei Ideos S7 Pro tablet.
Talking of the Ideos S7 Slim, the tablet is basically a refreshed or upgraded Huawei S7 tablet and is powered by a Qualcomm Snapdragon processor. Just like the S7, the S7 Slim too has a 800 x 480 pixel touchscreen display, although it replaces the resistive technology with capacitive. The S7 Slim has the usual-USB and HDMI ports, a microSD card slot, and yes, a rear-facing camera. The tablet features support for 3G, WiFi, Bluetooth, and GPS connectivity. Google Android 2.2 (Froyo) comes pre-loaded with the latest device. The S7 Slim is also a tad thinner than the older S7 tablet, but then the new one is missing out on the optical finger navigation area from the side of the display.
On the other hand, the Ideos S7 Pro on display was a non-working prototype and all that could be seen was a thin aluminium case, HDMI and USb ports, and both front and rear-facing cameras. However, some suggest that the tablet probably is powered by a 1.2 GHz dual core CPU, runs Google Android 2.3 Gingerbread, and can support 1080p HD video playback.
