    Just a heads-up.

    Huawei today officially released/announced the upgraded version of the Ideos S7 tablet here in Norway.

    The new Ideos S7 has a 1Ghz Snapdragon CPU and a capacitive multi-touch capable screen.
    It also has two cameras which is new for us Norwegians, as the old model sold here just had a single front-facing one.

    Other than that I believe it's more or less identical to the old model.

    It will "only" come shipped with Android 2.1, but it seems that the 2.2. software uppgrade we are all waiting for will be made available for both the new and the old version of the S7 (crossing my fingers) in a month or two.

    Here's a Google Translate'ed version of the Norwegian press release:
    (the date is wrong, should be February 9, of course - and "network/web board" is Googlish for "tablet"...)

    Sounds like a nice upgrade. Is this the same as the S7 slim that was recently posted? Or are they different devices?

    Wonder when/if this is coming to the US, and what the price would be? Currently, w/resistive screen, the S7 is a must-buy @ $249 and still decent @ $299, imo. Would definitely grab a capacitive version @ $329-349.

    Don't think so - the new S7 released here in Norway is the same size and width as the old one.
