[UPDATED] Vodafone launching Huawei MediaPad 10 Link 4G tablet into Australia

mediapad10linkTelco provider Vodafone announced this morning that it will be launching the Huawei MediaPad 10 Link 4G tablet in Australia on August 14.

The company announced the tablet would feature ‘Cat 4′ support, allowing for download speeds of up to 150Mbps over Vodafone’s 4GB network, as opposed to what it says is the standard Cat 3/100Mbps model.

The MediaPad 10 Link features Huawei’s own K3V2 quad-core Cortex A9 SoC CPU with Vivante GC4000 graphics engine driving a 10.1-inch I-PS panel with 1280×800-pixel resolution.

What’s not clear is which version Vodafone is selling – the MediaPad 10 Link 4G actually has three different built-in storage options (8, 16 or 32GB) but no announcement on this was made. Whatever the case, storage can be expanded through a MicroSD card slot, good for up to 32GB per card.

UPDATE: Vodafone has just reached out to us and told us it’ll be the 16GB version going on sale.

There’s decent networking with 802.11b/g/n Wi-Fi and Bluetooth 3.0 support and it comes with a sizeable 6600mAh Lithium-polymer battery, although we don’t have any battery life details at this stage. The tablet also comes with two cameras – a 3.2MP image sensor on the back and a more basic VGA camera on the front.

The MediaPad 10 Link will be available on three Vodafone plans, all 24-month contracts – a $35 plan with 2.5GB data, a $45 plan with 4GB and Vodafone’s $60 plan with 8GB of monthly data.
