Huawei MediaPad to launch with HSPA+ on AT&T tomorrow

Huawei’s MediaPad was announced long ago, being a Honeycomb tablet at a low price. The tablet will finally be making its way to a second carrier in the US (it already launched on T-Mobile), as it will be launching on AT&T shortly. It will feature the same specs including a 1.2GHz dual-core processor, 7-inch screen and Android Honeycomb (with plans to update to Ice Cream Sandwich). It will run on AT&T’s HSPA+ network, which may be disappointing considering they now have a LTE network. It will launch tomorrow, February 3, at various price points. The press release is below.
