Huawei has been making some great leaps and bounds lately in the world of Android and smartphones. While this phone isn't quite as powerful as its bigger brother the Ascend D Quad, the Ascend D1 is available now and still has some pretty impressive specs. Available today in China head down past the break for additional details.
Huawei has another handset that is set to hit the airwaves shortly. The odd thing here is the backwards direction it is taking. The Huawei M660 is sporting a BlackBerry style portrait hardware keyboard and appears to be running Android 2.3.6 Gingerbread. Users on Cricket Wireless might want to stay tuned.
Huawei? Despite being a definite up-and-comer in the Android world (in Europe and Asia, anyway - here they keep getting the shaft) they've left Android alone for the most part. Even on their high-end devices like the Acend P1 S, you'll find an interface that is mostly stock - and with Ice Cream Sandwich, what more do you need? Yes, Huawei is truly an example of what an Android manufacturer should be: a hardware vendor that lets Google's software shine on its own.
Samsung Galaxy S III, Samsung Galaxy Note, and both the upcoming T-Mobile (Huawei) MyTouch phones. We're certain that all of these phones are coming, and sooner rather than later, so it's nice to get some validation even in rumor form.
"T-Mobile" Prism, Huawei's latest de-branded device for the American carrier. The Prism is low-end in every sense of the word, but that doesn't necessarily mean bad - and the low-end is moving forward nearly as fast as flagship devices are. The biggest improvement here is the 3.5-inch 480x320 touchscreen, markedly larger and sharper than the 3.2-inch screens that typify the category.
Ice Cream Sandwich back in February during Mobile World Congress. The Huawei Ascend P1 will be available globally later this month so today we are taking a full hands-on look at it and unboxing it for everyone interested. In might not be Galaxy S III caliber but check it out after the break.
Prism 3G phone, which is manufactured by Huawei but gets no love from Magenta when it comes to branding. The Prism will cost $19.99 after a $50 mail in rebate (curses!) or $149.99 commitment-free when it launches later this month.
soon the Samsung Galaxy Note hitting T-Mobile, Magenta needs some low-end hardware to round out its lineup. Luckily, Huawei is more than happy to provide. According to internal documents spotted by TmoNews, the "T-Mobile Prism 3G" (looks like they're cutting Huawei out of the branding again) will land on the network on May 6th, this coming Sunday. This one's aimed right at the entry level.
MediaPad, also known as the T-Mobile Springboard here stateside. While it was the first 7-inch tablet to come with Android 3.2 Honeycomb, it wasn't the first to Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich although they've beat most to the upgrade. Huawei has recently released the ICS update for the MediaPad and now it's available for download.
