The Slate/tablet PC is making itself know wherever there’s any form of technology being showcased be it Computex or CommunicAsia. The latest device making the rounds is Huawei’s SmaKit S7 Android (v2.1) tablet.

It features a-

  • a 7-inch touchscreen display with a resolution of 800 x 480 pixels
  • 3G and Wi-Fi connectivity
  • a font facing camera which is hint at video calling capability obviously and
  • A kick stand so it can be propped up if your watching something or using it as a DPF (Digital Photo Frame)
  • Bluetooth
  • 3.5mm earphone socket
  • USB port
  • touch sensitive keys

According to a report, this tablet PC will be sold via operators which implies, like the iPad, it would involve the use of a SIM card in all likelihood. This could also mean the devices would also function as a mobile handset, albeit an oversized one at that. The SmaKit S7 can also be hooked up to media sharing devices for viewing media on larger screens like TV’s or monitors or transferring data. Another report also talks about it having HDMI capability and support for HD (720p) video support.

There’s no word on it’s launch or pricing just yet. Check out Cnet's hands-on video at CommunicAsia 2010.
