Huawei S7 Might Just Be Tablet of the Show

IMG_3593Update: Hands-on video and price now available.

We’ve seen the Huawei S7 before but have never had hands-on or even knew the details on the platform being used to drive it. At the Qualcomm press location today I got to sort both of those issues out and walked away impressed. This is a full 7” capacitive tablet running Android 2.1 with voice, 3G and full Google application suite. Yes, it makes calls but the form factor is just perfect for one-handed use. Personally, I think its the best Android tablet I’ve seen so far. No details on price or availability but we assume that Huawei will using their existing channels and partners to get this out. It won’t be cheap, but it’s got everything needed. I have a video that I’ll upload later. What do you think?

    Suddenly the big bezel around the iPad screen starts to look like a great design. This device also seems to be a bit thick. One of the reasons the solid state Archos 5 tablets are so nice is how thin they are. That thickness and bezel tells me it’s heavy, difficult to hold and maybe has a fan inside? Or is it all battery? And then is it a heat radiating power hog or will it go for 24 hour of video playback with all radios on?

    The bezel is added as a usability workaround, to prevent un-intented touch of the fingers on the screen. E.g: When we hold the device using the one hand, sometimes the thumb may rest on the touchscreen (if the bezel is small). This will prevent the touch screen from detecting the finger touch when you use the other hand.. On multitouch screens, it may give confusing signals… you may be actually trying to flip the page, but the thumb resting on the screen may probably give a signal that you are trying to stretch/pinch the displayed image…
