Huawei MediaPad SeriesAndroid tablets announced in the past few months show so much potential spec-wise. Then they suddenly slap us across the face with their “Android 4.0 to come at a later date” disclaimers.

Not Huawei. The company announced on Wednesday its upcoming MediaPad will be one of the world’s first tablets to come pre-loaded with Ice Cream Sandwich. Feeling old school? Huawei is also introducing a MediaPad Color line in shadow black, classic brown and passion pink with Android 3.2 preloaded.

Both tablets will come equipped with 7-inch displays (1280×800) at 217ppi, 1080p full HD video playback and 1.2Ghz dual-core processors. “With a hardware package that includes a high-quality screen, a powerful dual-core processor, and long battery life, these colorful MediaPad embodies a rare combination of style and performance.”

The MediaPad and MediaPad Color are both expected to be available in select markets in Q1 2012, with existing MediaPad devices getting the Android 4.0 treatment around the same timeframe.
