If you’ve followed our website, I’m sure you know that makers such as HP, Dell, Lenovo or Toshiba have announced their support for Windows 8. This means that they will be launch partners, so in October they’ll debut Win 8 goodies on the market. Anyway the news here is that Huawei will also launch a Windows 8 tablet.
Chengdong Yu, CEO of Huawei’s Consumer Business Area has announced on Chinese social networking site Weibo the fact that a model related to MediaPad 10 FHD is in development, with Windows 8 on board. It could be a successor of the MediaPad 10, or simply that version with another OS. I’m curious to see how Huawei will price the product, considering the usually put out cheap devices. It will also be interesting to see if Microsoft allows them to use their own quad core CPU or make them comply to using an Intel chipset or an ARM one.
The MediaPad FHD 10 is a very appealing tablet, with the latest Android on board, so a Windows 8 version will also be pretty appealing. Huawei has another model in the works as well, with LTE connectivity and this product seems dedicated to the US market. Don’t be surprised if you also see them launching Windows Phone 8 devices.
