The MediaPad X1 is Huawei’s take on a Nexus 7 killer, and the Chinese fi rm claims it’s the most slender tablet (or, rather, phablet) in its class.
The X1, which will cost W399 and launch within the next few months, is certainly narrow and very easy to grip with one hand. The MediaPad is both thin and light, at 7.2mm and 239g, but with a 7in full-HD IPS screen it’s way too big to use as a phone.
