The ever increasing popularity of tablet devices over the last year has seen more and more equipment manufacturers release their own tablet devices in an effort to get themselves a share of this rapidly expanding market. One of the more recent companies to release a new tablet is Huawei and its new MediaPad 10 is set to compete with what is expected to be one of the most popular tablets to hit the market, the New iPad.
In comparison, the specs and features on the Huawei MediaPad 10 and the New iPad are going to make it difficult for users to choose between as each device is able to beat the other in certain areas.
Starting with the cosmetic look there is very little between these two tablets with the New iPad having a thickness of 9.4mm and a weight of 652 grams whilst the Huawei MediaPad 10 is just 8.8mm thick and weighs 598 grams.
The difference between the displays on these two devices, however, is a significant one with the Huawei tablet using a 10 inch IPS Lcd with a resolution of 1920 x 1200 pixels giving it a pixel density of 226 pixels-per-inch (ppi) but the New iPad has bettered this with its 9.7 inch LED-backlit retina display that offers a resolution of 1536 x 2048 pixels which gives it the best pixel density currently available on a tablet at 364 ppi.
The processor specs on these tablets will be difficult to compare until the devices are released but the New iPad definitely appears to have the best setup right now with its dual-core 1GHz processor combined with its quad-core A5X PowerVR graphics processing unit (GPU) compared to the quad-core K3V2 1.5GHz processor in the MediaPad 10.
Overall, the features above combined with many of the other features on the New iPad give it the edge over its MediaPad 10 rival including storage capacity, which sees the New iPad offering up to 64GB compared to the 40GB offered on the MediaPad 10, and a 5 megapixel camera on the New iPad compared to an 8 megapixel on the MediaPad 10 which may give the impression the Huawei tablet is better but with the advanced technology that comes with the camera on the New iPad the end result will probably mean better pictures on the 5 megapixel camera.
