Globe has a new product offering but it is not the usual thing as this one is a tablet called as Globe Tattoo MediaPad. Yep, you heard it right. It is supposed to be a Globe branded tablet just like Smart’s Netphone. Looking a bit further, the Tattoo MediaPad is actually a rebranded Huawei MediaPad that was released months ago. Check out more details below.
Globe Tattoo MediaPad is basically a Huawei MediaPad but with an OS upgrade – it is now running Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich as opposed to the Android 3.2 Honeycomb it originally contained. Tattoo MediaPad will be sporting a 1.2GHz dual-core processor for fast navigation, Adreno 220 for an enhanced graphics rendering, and 1GB of RAM for seamless multitasking. Here’s the official Huawei MediaPad demo video but please do take note that this device shown in the video still runs on Honeycomb OS.
In terms of multimedia functionality, it has bunch of features too. It has a 5MP rear camera, 1.3MP front camera, and 720p video recording at 30fps. If we’ll look in the connectivity side, it has the usual Wi-Fi support plus the native 3G capability which can be a real big decision maker if it will be pitted against other tablets like Samsung Galaxy Tab 2 and Google Nexus 7. All of these are packed into its 7-inch IPS display for optimal viewing experience.
