The other tablet Huawei’s CEO specifically called out — alongside the Apple iPad Mini with Retina Display — when talking about the new MediaPad X1, is the LG-made Google Nexus 7. While we didn’t have a 2013 version of the Google slate with us, we compared the MediaPad X1 with the original Nexus 7.
Not to worry though, we’re not focusing on specs and horsepower specifically, but we’re looking at how two tablets with the same display size can have dramatically different overall physical dimensions. That, plus it’s the eternal question of whether you want stock Android (and timely updates), versus probably not the latest iteration of Google’s OS, with the Emotion UI on top of it. …and let’s not forget phone capabilities.
