Huawei was the first company to bring Android 3.2 on a seven-inch slate to the mainstream with the MediaPad, and now it has released an official Ice Cream Sandwich for the device.

The 329MB download brings a seemingly stock Android experience, as well as all of the enhancements and benefits of ICS along with it.


Unlike most devices, the update for the MediaPad isn't being sent over-the-air, so in order to grab this update, you'll have to head over to Huawei's website for the download (installation instructions should be inside of zip).

    Sigh...I knew I should have just gotten the MediaPad when it came out.

       I'm assuming you have the Tab 10.1 then...

      • Freak4Dell

         Nah, I bought an HTC Evo View 4G.

      Are you saying you can actually use this update for the T-Mobile Springboard?

      • KTAB

        using it now and gotta say ICS is smooth and makes the springboard much better.

        the update changes your springboard to a mediapad. I cannot verify the 4g because i let my contract expire.
