Accompanying the MediaPad 10 FHD is its smaller sibling the Huawei MediaPad 7 Lite which brings forth a sleek design and 3G connectivity for voice calling. That means users will be able to conveniently port it around and access various cellular features including SMS and MMS on the go.

Hidden within its sleek metal unibody shell which measures 193mm x 120mm x 11mm in dimensions, is a Cortex A8 1.2GHz processor which does all the heavy lifting, accompanied by 1GB of RAM. Visuals are delivered through a 7-inch WSVGA capacitive multi-touch screen rendering a resolution of 1024 X 600 pixels. The built-in flash storage is pegged at 8GB and a microSD cards slot is embedded as well, for expansion purposes.

“Good things come in small packages. The MediaPad 7 Lite is our answer to consumers’ demands for a good-looking, portable high-performance tablet at a price that makes sense for them. The MediaPad 7 Lite is consumers’ perfect entertainment and communications companion,” expressed Richard Yu, Chairman of Huawei Device.
