(MENAFN - Arab News) Huawei, a global information and communications technology (ICT) solutions provider, has seized the attention of the world's consumer electronics industry this week with the unveiling of several landmark devices including the Huawei Ascend D quad, described as the world's fastest smartphone, and the Huawei MediaPad 10 FHD, described as the world's first 10-inch quad-core tablet.
Huawei also introduced the world's smallest data card, slimmest PC/CE module, and the world's thinnest mobile hotspot.
Showcased at the recent Mobile World Congress in Barcelona, the devices are but a hint of the company's 2012 product lineup which is anticipated to seal Huawei's place at the top end of the consumer device market and further move the brand to a top-five global handset vendor in the next two years.
"We've listened to people's top demands from smartphones: Speed, long-battery life, high-quality visual and audio capabilities, and a compact lightweight handset.
The Huawei Ascend D quad exceeds all these expectations," said Richard Yu, chairman of Huawei Device. "On the tablet side, most consumers use tablets for entertainment purposes such as gaming, viewing multimedia content, browsing the Internet and reading e-books. We have created the Huawei MediaPad 10 FHD to excel in all of these entertainment capabilities with speed, power, high-definition display and audio, and packaging it all in a sleek and portable design."
Powered by Huawei's K3V2 quad-core 1.2GHz/1.5GHz processor and boasting the most compact design among 4.5-inch smartphones, the Ascend D quad expands the realm of possibilities for consumers with an Android 4.0 operating system and a proprietary power management system, which provides up to 30% in energy savings.
The Ascend D quad is an entertainment dynamo with its 4.5-inch 720P high definition touch screen, and the industry's most powerful 32-bit true color graphic processor.
It comes with an 1800mAh battery, which lasts for one to two days with normal usage.
