[CES 2016] Huawei MediaPad M2 10.0 Hands-On (Video)

We had a few minutes with the new Huawei MediaPad M2 10.0 after Huawei's CES press conference this morning, and here's the rundown on the upcoming slate. This isn't Huawei's first tablet, but it may well be their first particularly respectable one. While it does appear it will ship with Android 5.1.1 - everyone sigh collectively - the tablet itself feels like a reasonably nice piece of hardware.


In its most basic form, the M2 comes with a modest 16GB of storage and 2GB of RAM, which is what we played with today. But 3GB/64GB models will also be sold, plus LTE variants, and ones with Huawei's Surface-esque stylus accessory, the M-Pen.

Huawei Announces The MediaPad M2 10.0, Looks Like Samsung And Apple Had A Baby That Works With The Surface Pen

Look, I know that we do the Samsung vs. Apple comparisons a lot, but it's not that often we get to talk about what would happen if Samsung and Apple got together for a little late-night action and popped out a co-designed device. If you've ever wondered what that might look like, the Huawei MediaPad M2 10.0 is probably a pretty accurate representation. And just for good measure, it has something that looks like a Surface Pen to go along with it. Pretty much every base has been covered here—at least Huawei isn't showing any bias.

All joking aside, it actually sounds a pretty decent tablet on paper…if you're still in the market for an Android tablet, anyway.

T-Mobile has just updated the supports documents for the Springboard tablet, and owners are in for a welcome surprise.  The device might not have attracted much attention when it was launched, but now it's getting some sweet Ice Cream Sandwich action. Users can anticipate an OTA update to start hitting devices on August 15.

It's understandable that you might have forgotten that the Springboard existed, but it wasn't a bad device before the Nexus 7 arrived in the same niche. The Springboard is actually a branded version of the 7-inch Huawei MediaPad. It has a 1280x800 IPS screen, 16GB of storage, and T-Mobile's HSPA+ "4G" data.

Ice Cream Sandwich Now Available For The Huawei MediaPad

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).
