rapid reviews, and no, I'm not referring at all to the obvious there...
I'm talking here about devices whose time may already have passed, but which may have taken on a new relevance in light of some other context, or that perhaps escaped our attention in their prime but shouldn't have. Devices that have some really interesting aspects, some technology or idea that is simply too revolutionary not to write about, something so astonishing it makes the device assume a significance beyond it's market share in terms of how it defines the discussions we have about smartphones, tablets, and technology.
(or, if we drop the grandiosity a notch for a few moments, maybe just that end-of-life bargain that you shouldn't miss)
At any rate, we'll have the first of these reviews up shortly, covering none other than the humble Huawei MediaPad. If a nine month old Android tablet doesn't immediately seem like something worth spending print on to you, then I guess you'll just have read the review to see why we beg to differ. Without wanting to give everything away right now, let me just say that I prefer my MediaPad to my Nexus 7. If you did a double-take just now, let me assure you: that is exactly what I meant to say.
Catch you then.
