If you're on the hunt for a tablet that isn't made by Apple, Huawei could have just the thing. Set for release are two new tablets for the MatePad range – the MatePad 11 and the MatePad Pro 12.6, and it looks as if they'll have a set of features ideal for creatives on the go.

Though the MatePad line has, so far, had middling reviews, the new models will contain some significant upgrades, which could make them worth considering – especially at the reasonable price points we've come to expect from Huawei.
