Well wouldn’t you know it, our favorite fashion super diva has her own device – or so it would seem. Probably actually having nothing to do with the queen of odd, Huawei has codenamed their new device GAGA with the tag X1 U8180 attached. This device is a handset that’s bound to carry Android, and some version pre-Ice Cream Sandwich by the looks of it. Also worth noting before we get to the specs is the fact that Huawei has trademarked the name HUAWEI GAGA in the United States. Where could this device be headed? Surprisingly it doesn’t appear that the USA is first on the list.
This device is currently listed as supporting 850 / 1900 GSM, and 850 WCDMA bands, this pointing toward carriers outside of the states. Beyond that, this device will indeed be running Android 2.2 Froyo, will feature a 2.8-inch QVGA touchscreen display, have Wi-fi connectedness, GPS, a 3.5mm headset jack, and a 528MHz processor of some sort. This device also has a 3.2-megapixel camera on the back and does have microSD card support.
This device is already sneaking into the spotlight under Portugese carrier Optimus, and will be launching at least in the UK with Orange. Will it hit the USA? We always welcome additional carriers to pave the way to a more competitive market – thusly making handsets more powerful and more excellent much quicker. But wait, what else does this handset look like? Does it look sort of similar to a Nokia friend of ours? Also look at that camera lens and speaker grill – seems rather familiar, wouldn’t you say?
Huawei! Don’t turn into the next copycat! Come to the USA with some amazing products and make us innovate to the max!
