Haier launches range of Android tablets, smartphone at IFA

Chinese brand Haier, perhaps better known for household appliances than mobile devices, has revealed a series of Android-powered tablets and a smartphone ahead of consumer electronics fair IFA in Berlin. 

The Chinese brand has unveiled two tablets and a smartphone ahead of IFA, marking the first time Haier has introduced its mobile devices to Europe.

The two tablets -- the Mini Pad711 and the Maxi Pad1012 -- both run Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich; the Mini Pad711 boats a resolution of 1024x600 and measures 7 inches, while the Maxi Pad1012 has a resolution of 1024x768 and measures 9.7 inches; both devices haave a Cortex-8 processor b/g/n Wi-Fi and 8GB or storage (expandable with microSD).

On the smartphone front, Haier has unveiled the Haier-Phone Pad5511 which clocks in at 5.3 inches with a 940x540 display, 4GB of storage, an 8MP camera and runs on Android (the exact version of which has not yet been specified). These specifications put the Haier smartphone very much in the mid-range, mid-performance bracket.

Two of the biggest announcements in the smartphone tablet world expected at this year's IFA are the unveiling of Samsung's next-gen tablet /smartphone hybrid the Galaxy Note 2 and Sony's high-end smart phone the Xperia SL.
