Late last month, the Huawei Honor Tablet launched in Malaysia without fanfare. It’s a budget-friendly tablet sporting an exquisite metal unibody.

The Huawei Honor Tablet, while essentially an 8-inch Android slate, can also be considered as a gigantic phone (even larger than the leaked Huawei Honor 6). It not only sends and receives text messages but can also make calls too. Holding it up against the ear would warrant quizzical looks from other people, though, which is why a Bluetooth headset should come in handy with this tablet.

As a budget-friendly device, the Huawei Honor Tablet uses passable specs. There are last year’s Snapdragon 200 processor and Adreno 302 graphics. It also sports an 8-inch IPS display, 16GB of built-in storage, and 1GB of RAM. Selfie and photo junkies might not be satisfied with this device, as there are only a 5-megapixel main camera with fixed focus at the back and a VGA camera in front.
