We knew that 2012 would be the year of the high resolution tablet. It’s only logical that current tablets, most of which cap out at 1280×800 pixels, would be succeeded by devices with full 1080p 1920×1080 resolution. But to go beyond that is impressive. Notwithstanding the rumors about the iPad 3 having a 2048×1536 pixel display, the Huawei MediaPad, with its 1920×1200 resolution, will take the crown as the highest resolution tablet yet. My monitor at work, a full 14″ larger than the MediaPad 10, has that same 1920×1200 resolution.
The MediaPad 10 was sort of on display at MWC, that is, they had a hand-built prototype, which gives us a sense at how close to shipping the MediaPad 10 is. It’ll be a quad-core tablet that manages to be remarkably thin at under 9mm. No word on pricing, but look for it to ship in the Q2.
