Fancy grabbing the new Huawei MediaPad M2 10″ tablet we reviewed just this morning? It’s now on sale from Currys PC World. The tablet, which we reviewed here, has Harman Kardon speaker technology (which sound, let me tell you, very good indeed), excellent battery life and a slim, well-built chassis.
There’s two versions available and, according to the people from Currys PC World, they’ll be selling the MediaPad first. There’s the “Standard” edition, which has 16GB storage and 2GB memory and no “M Pen” for £249.99. Also available is the “Premium” edition, which has 64GB storage, 3GB memory and that “M Pen” for £329.99. If you’re into your artistry and like taking notes, get the “Premium” one. Also, there’s no other way of adding additional storage, so choose wisely.
