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

Although Huawei is updating its original MediaPad with the latest Ice Cream Sandwich version of Android, models in the new colour range - black, brown and pink - will ship with Android 3.2 Honeycomb.

"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.
