Huawei-MediaPad-10-FHD-FCC

Hoping to elevate the brand to new heights, Huawei has steadily upped its game this year by cranking up the specs on its upcoming phones and tablets. The Chinese manufacturer is also taking a leaf out of Samsung’s playbook as it moves towards developing its own SoC, the result of which can be seen in the MediaPad 10 FHD tablet. Thanks to a recent FCC filing, we now know that a US entrance may not be too far behind.

Huawei is becoming an increasingly familiar name for Western consumers (or is it just tech bloggers?), although not everyone knows how to pronounce it correctly. Devices like the Ascend D Quad...

The result can be seen in the company’s Ascend series. After being launched in Australia and Canada, the Ascend P1 will be vying for some love from UK customers soon.

Whether we like it or not, the wait for a true “iPad killer” has extended much longer than expected and is not set to end very soon. Samsung and Asus have come up with more than decent 10-inch... tablets the past year or so, while Amazon and Google have released some really competitive 7-inchers.

Huawei is a Chinese telecommunications company founded way back in the late 80s that happens to make quite a lot of mobile equipment, including various Android handsets,... some of them quite interesting. The company also happens to have an unpronounceable name, although I’m sure over 1 billion Chinese people would strongly disagree with us tech blogs that report on Huawei-re...

After the announcement of the Nexus 7, which is an almost-no-compromise tablet that sells for only $200, a lot of people have been wondering why we can’t buy powerful smartphones that... are just as affordable as the Nexus 7. The answer is not an easy one, as a smartphone contains more components than the Nexus 7, some of them being quite expensive, like the 3G and 4G modems, the hig...

Huawei might have disappointed us all when it announced the Ascend D Quad’s release being delayed to late August or early September, but the company’s flagship phone might actually be worth... the wait after all.
