Not something get excited about. It will combine a dual-core AllWinner A20 CPU with 3G [Google English]. 3G will be via a new UltraStick standard developed by Huawei [Google English] and already adopted by Chuwi in a new Retina-class tablet [Google English].
Apparently UltraStick will make it very easy to offer 3G as an option for tablets:
Here are the tech specs:
I have to wonder, however, if this will limit 3G tablets to China? That is, moreso than they already might be. UltraStick would have to be adopted outside of China and become an international standard before it’s safe for everyone to buy. Otherwise, these tablets might not have the standard SIM and microSIM card slots people outside of China expect.
Same-day update: I’ve learned that UltraStick replaces the need for tablet makers to build 3G into their tablets. The UltraStick is the 3G. And apparently a SIM or microSIM is then inserted into the UltraStick. This is all rather clever.
