Despite having multiple confirmations from Huawei support staff stating that the Huawei Ideos S7 Android tablet was receiving an upgrade sometime in Q1 of 2011, more specifically before the end of March, the last day of March passed. Huawei support staff now reply stating that the update is 'in development', backtracking from previous statements of its availability. The S7 was Huawei's only entry into the Android tablet market.
It is an unfortunate development for existing owners, who now have to wonder if they will ever see the promised Android 2.2 update for their S7 tablets at all. Huawei is set to launch more Android tablets this year, in the S7 Slim and S7 Pro. The baffling lack of communication from Huawei has undoubtedly created a lasting impression on consumers for some time to come.
