Huawei has just taken the covers off its MediaPad 7 Youth2 tablet that also acts as a phone.

The 7-inch tablet comes with a 1024 x 600 (169ppi) resolution display on a 9.9mm thick frame that weighs in at 350g. On the power front it's pushing 1.2GHz with an MSM8X12 quad-core A7 and 1GB of RAM, which should keep going for a while thanks to the 4100mAh battery.

The MediaPad 7 Youth2 is a rare breed, not only for its odd name, but also because it can make 2G and 3G calls, just like your mobile. Insert Dom Jolly jokes here. Less impressive specs include 4GB storage which can be expanded to 32GB using microSD, Android 4.3 OS, HSPA+ as the fastest connection, plus 3-megapixel and 0.3-megapixel cameras.

Huawei has not announced a release date or price yet. From the specs you can expect an affordable price aimed at competing with the Samsung Galaxy Tab 3 Lite.
