Huawei's MediaPad tablet will be one of the first to ship with Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich preloaded, company officials claimed.

"In a tablet market defined by staid black and white tablets, the new colourful MediaPad offers a personalised look without the need for an external case," said Richard Yu, chairman of Huawei Device. "With a hardware package that includes a high-quality screen, a powerful dual-core processor, and long battery life, these colourful MediaPad embodies a rare combination of style and performance."

The new colour range and the MediaPad with Ice Cream Sandwich will ship during the first quarter. "Existing MediaPad owners will receive an OTA [over the air] Android 4.0 upgrade to their tablets by the first quarter of 2012," Huawei officials stated.
