Pretoria residents have a chance to be the first to test the new Huawei MediaPad, an affordable 7” tablet computer, at the opening of the new @lantic retail store in the Kolonnade Shopping Centre in Montana this month.
“The MediaPad is the first tablet in the world to feature the new Honeycomb version of the popular Android operating system,” says @lantic’s Sales & Marketing Director, Dederick Venter. ”With a touch screen, fast dual core processor, two cameras, 3G and wifi capability and a six-hour battery life, it’s the ideal portable device for surfing the internet, watching videos, playing games or catching up on your email.”
@lantic, the consumer and small business ISP in the Vox Telecom group, has partnered with Huawei to launch the MediaPad in South Africa, and the device will make its first local appearance from April 17th to 22nd. “The grand opening of our new store is on April 21st, but customers will have a chance to try out the MediaPad at our interactive stand in the mall for several days before that,” says Venter.
Customers will be able to touch, feel and play on the tablet, says Venter – and the winner of an on-site Angry Birds gaming contest will get their very own MediaPad.
“@lantic is as committed as ever to bringing easy, affordable technology to all South Africans,” says Venter. “We’re delighted to be the first to give our customers the chance to experience the tablet revolution that is the MediaPad.”
