Huawei MediaPad updated to Android 4, but no plans for Australia yet

By Leigh D. Stark | 2:38 pm 12/01/2012

We get lots of requests for release dates here at GadgetGuy, and Huawei’s MediaPad is actually among the most asked about. Today, we’ve received good news and bad news about it.

The good news is that the next evolution of Android – Ice Cream Sandwich – will be appearing on the 7 inch tablet, a gadget that we previewed last year when Huawei gave us some hands-on time.

Sadly, the bad news is that Huawei currently has no plans for a release of the MediaPad in Australia.

The Huawei MediaPad, seen here in pink, isn't destined for release in Australia yet.

Today, Huawei confirmed to us that “there are no current, firm plans to bring the MediaPad to Australia yet, however there are plenty of other mobile devices on their way in 2012″.

Not the best of news for people keen on the tablet, but here’s hoping Huawei has a change of heart.
