It would be kind of surprising if an up and coming mobile brand like Huawei didn’t make a new product announcement at MWC. Fortunately, the company has launched a few new devices, including a new IDEOS Android handset and an updated 7-inch tablet.

Upgrading their original IDEOS handset, the X3 is a thinner, sexier design than its predeccessor with a 3.2-inch touchscreen and running the Gingerbread version of Android. Running on the 900/2100MHz bands and including Bluetooth, FM radio, wireless N and a 3.2MP front facing camera, it’s a highly specced phone that’s expected to be priced below $US200 when it launches in the middle of the year.

Meanwhile, their new S7 Slim tablet is an updated version of the S7, which you might recognise as the T-Touch Tab by another name. This new Slim version upgrades the S7’s touchscreen to a capacitive panel, includes a 1GHz SnapDragon processor and runs Froyo, and is expected to launch around the world in April.

Of course, there are no local details on these products – Huawei say they’re in discussions with local carriers to bring them out down here. But with an April release around the world, it shouldn’t be too long a wait to hear more specific details…
