Huawei updates its 7-inch MediaPad to Android 4.0 ICS

Huawei releases an update to Android 4.0 ICS for its MediaPad.

| Mobile Devices, Tablets & Phones News | Posted: May 2, 2012 2:07 pm

Almost in tandem with my post about the poor Android ICS adoption rate yesterday, Huawei has announced the availability to download and update the MediaPad to Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich. This aging tablet, which was first launched in October of last year, will gain a redesigned user interface, power management, and other benefits from the upgrade.

The 330MB download isn't available as an OTA upgrade, so users will have to download the software on their PCs to upgrade the device. Other features included with the new update include new app icons and resizeable widgets along with an improved web browser and much more. The update is encouraged for all users. If you buy a new MediaPad, you will find that Huawei has already pre-installed Android 4.0 ICS, so there is nothing you need to do.
