With the passage of time, it does seem that the 8″ form factor is slowly turning into a killer category due to its bridging of portability and functionality. The latest entrant in this sector is the low-end Honor T1, which comes with such a display and costs 130 Euros.
Remarkably, the design is quite good for a product of this price bracket, featuring aluminium unibody and being 7.9mm thick. The display also boasts a usable 720p resolution.
Huawei Honor T1 is an 8 inch budget friendly tablet that comes with 3G and a SIM card slot
Underneath, you get a 1.2Ghz quad-core Snapdragon 200 processor with 1 GB worth RAM and 8 GB of storage, expandable via microSD. There’s a duo of 5 mp and VGA cameras on the front and back. It’s powered by a 4,800 mAh battery. The OS running on this tablet is Android 4.3, which is not new but certainly livable. It’s customized, of course.
Lastly, the most-important feature perhaps is the 3G connectivity, which comes as a standard addition.
As said earlier, pricing is set at 130 Euros for the tablet when it hits the markets later this month. It will face stiff competition from devices such as the ASUS Memo Pad but has a strong advantage in the form of that coveted SIM slot.
