Huawei Blurs The Phablet Line With 7" MediaPad 7 Vogue

Phablet? Tablet? Phone? Perhaps the designation doesn't even matter any longer. With phones like the Note 8.0 and Note II blurring the edges of what's too large to make a phone call, Huawei is introducing a mondo phone of its own. The MediaPad 7 Vogue is a 7" device, sized up similarly to the Nexus 7, but it offers a voice radio as well as a data radio. It's built from an aluminum unibody frame and features a quad-core 1.2GHz processor CPU and 16-core GPU, a 3G modem, 802.11b/g/n Wi-Fi, and a 4100mAh battery.

It measures 9.5mm thick and weighs 335 grams, and the display offers a 1024 x 600 native resolution. It ships with Android 4.1 (Jelly Bean), and also includes a micro-USB port, Bluetooth and a price tag to follow. It'll be black and white, and should ship in China soon before filtering out elsewhere.
