We've just got our hands on the [[artnid:522291|Huawei MediaPad 10 Link 4G]], a tablet Vodafone has called the "fastest" in Australia. It supports the LTE Category 4 mobile data standard, the newest and fastest class of 4G. Let's take a look!
The retail packaging for the Huawei MediaPad 10 Link 4G.
The back of the box lists the specifications. The tablet is powered by Huawei's own K3V2 1.2GHz quad-core processor and has 1GB of RAM.
Unboxing the Huawei MediaPad 10 Link 4G (yes, it's a real tongue twister).
The sales package includes an Australian AC adapter and a standard USB-to-microUSB cable.
The back of the MediaPad 10 Link 4G has a smooth, aluminum finish with a white plastic piece across the top. It feels relatively well constructed, though the plastic does creak when pressure is applied to the case.
Huawei branding is prominent on the front, underneath the display.
A standard 3.5mm headphone jack and a micro-USB port for charging sit on the right side of the tablet.
On the left there's a lock/power button and a volume rocker. The latter feels a little flimsy and loose but provides decent tacility.
The Huawei MediaPad 10 Link 4G has dual speakers on the back, on either side.
There's a 3-megapixel camera on the back for still photos and videos, and a front-facing VGA camera for video calls.
The MediaPad 10 Link 4G comes with just 8GB of internal memory but a microSD card slot is available. It's hidden behind a plastic flap along the top, next to the full-sized SIM card slot.
Aside from its Category 4 support, the MediaPad 10 Link 4G is a fairly run of the mill Android tablet. It's 10.1in IPS display has a low resolution of 1280x800.
If you look closely, you'll see that text and finer detail can appear hazy and pixelated.
The Huawei MediaPad 10 Link 4G will be available through Vodafone from Wednesday, 14 August. We'll have a full review published in the next week.
