Huawei presents 8-inch tablet with phone calls capability

Huawei has presented a new 8-inch tablet that is capable of making phone calls. The new device is called Honor Tablet and sports a thin and light metallic chassis (7.9 mm/360 grams).

The Honor Tablet has a 1.3 GHz quad-core Qualcomm Snapdragon 200 (MSM8212) processor with Adreno 305 graphics, an 8-inch sensor IPS display that works at 1280 x 800 pixels, 1 GB of RAM, 16 GB of internal memory, a microSD card slot (up to 32 GB), one rear 5 MP camera and one front 0.3 MP camera, 802.11n Wi-Fi, Bluetooth, a GPS receiver, a light sensor and more. The device is powered by a 4800 mAh battery.

The main feature of the new Huawei tablet is the phone calls capability – the tablet supports 3G and there’s a SIM card slot – when a SIM card is installed you can make phone calls and even send and receive SMS messages. Thus you have the best of both worlds – a tablet and a smartphone, albeit a really big one, in the same place.

The new Huawei Honor runs Android 4.3 Jelly Bean and there’s the Huawei Emotion 1.6 user interface on top of it. The tablet-phone device will sell for USD 184 when it gets in a store near you.
