The 7 inch tablet from Chinese manufacturer Huawei christened S7 had generated a lot interest among tablet enthusiasts which was largely due to the interesting features that the tablet packed in. It offers both 3G and Wi-Fi connectivity besides having a Qualcomm Snapdragon processor as its heart. Then the S7 is also among a very exclusive group of tablets that could claim unrestricted access to the Google Android Market.
While all of these along with so much more has indeed made a S7 tablet so much more alluring, the one grouse that users had of the tablet so far was its resistive touch screen which is known to respond far better to stylus or finger nail inputs than to finger tips. This had made using the tablet a tad more inconvenient and buyers in Europe and the US where the S7 featured a resistive touchscreen to look for other better options.
But not any more as the company seems to have taken heed of consumer demands and has come out with a version of the S7 equipped with the much more responsive and multi touch capable capacitive touch screen. The good folks at the Android Tablet Forum are also kind enough to share a few videos of the S7 tablet which includes a hands-on video from Russia as well as a promotional video of the tablet.
However, there is no news as of now as to when we can expect the capacitive touch screen enabled Huawei S7 to enter markets or what it will be priced. It won’t be surprising though if the capacitive touch enabled S7 sells for a premium compared to its resistive counterpart.
