Huawei’s new, long-lasting MediaPad tablets are available in the US

Huawei MediaPad M5 tablets are available now for your bingeing pleasure

The timing of this announcement is interesting: Just last week, blogs were reporting that Google had silently removed the tablets page from its Android website, leading to speculation about the future of the platform on this form factor. The main differences between the smaller one and the larger one - other than screen size - is the larger battery of 7500mAh over 5100mAh, and the 10.8-inch variant has Pogo pins on the back for connecting a keyboard.

The Huawei MediaPad M5, announced earlier this year at Barcelona's MWC 2018, is finally available in the US. In Space Gray, the 8.4-inch is $320 and the 10.8-inch Pro is $360, while the 10.8-inch Pro in Champagne gold is $450. You can purchase the MediaPad M5 tablets starting today at Amazon.com and NewEgg.

The Windows 10 laptop managed to beat the latest trio of Android-based iPad Pro rivals to the United States market last month, but now the MediaPad M5 8.4, M5 10.8 and M5 Pro 10.8 are also up for grabs at Amazon and Newegg. The Pro model is obviously the costliest, although the only thing that separates it from the $359 non-Pro 10.8-incher is a "lightweight and ergonomically designed" M-Pen stylus equipped with "world-class 4096-level pressure sensitivity".
