If you are looking for a new and cheap tablet then you might want to take a look at the latest budget offering from Huawei, the Huawei Honor T1. The tablet was previously announced a couple of months ago and has been available in India since October for INR 9,999, which is roughly $157. However, it now seems as though the device is about to land in Europe as it has suddenly appeared on the Cyberport website. The listing shows the device although it is not currently in stock. The fact that the listing has gone live though suggests it will soon enough be available. In terms of price, the Honor T1 is up on sale for €129 which is roughly $160.
So what do you get for $160? Well, the Huawei Honor T1 offers an 8” display with a 1280 x 800 resolution. Inside the device comes with 1GB RAM and a Qualcomm Snapdragon 200 processor (clocking at 1.2GHz). In terms of cameras, the T1 comes with a 5MP rear camera along with a 0.3MP VGA front-facing option. The device also comes with 8GB internal storage and a microSD card slot for expandable storage up to 32GB. In addition, the device is powered by a 4,800mAh battery. Additional features worth noting include 3G and running on Android 4.3 (Jelly Bean) out of the box.
For the money, this will be a good budget tablet and should perform well. However, it will be disappointing for some users that it comes running on Jelly Bean out of the box and especially as there are no current details on whether Android 4.4 (KitKat) will be available in the future. Either way though if you are based in Europe, you can expect the Huawei Honor T1 to be available any day now. There are no details at the moment as to whether it will get a US release.
