Last week several internet news sites reported that Huawei is preparing a dual-OS smartphone that will come with Windows Phone and Android operating system. The first such device should appear in the U.S. market during the second quarter of this year.
Huawei MediaPad X1 is the thinnest and lightest tablet with Android, atleast accroding to the company. Aluminium case measures thickness of 7.18 mm and weighs only 239 grams.
Chinese company Huawei has unveiled a new family members under a name Honor, low cost devices designed for selected markets. The devices are Honor 3C and Honor 3X, and interesting thing is that they do not have processors from Huwei's production but from MediaTek.
Huawei at the presentation in London officially launched smartphones Ascend P6. The device boasts a stylish design and a very small thickness of only 6.18 mm, while the total weight of the metal casing is 120 grams.
Once upon a time Nokia was a giant in the industry. They towered over everyone even Apple and held the market with their own OS Symbian for a number of years.
Unfortunately as the rest of the world broke into Android and iOS Symbian was quickly forgotten even though it is one of the founders of the smartphone era. Nokia was also no slouch at developing hardware either. They are the holders of a large number of patents (their own inventions too). Still despite all of this Nokia could not hold onto the crown. After a few years trying to make Symbian more relevant they have dropped several rungs in the ladder and now are partnered up with Microsoft as the premier partner for their Windows Phone platform.
Huawei finally decided to enter the high end smartphone market. After the Ascend P1 made fairly good success they are now bringing something more powerful to compete with Galaxy S3, iPhone 5 and company.
When introducing Windows Phone 8, Microsoft announced four manufacturers that will have devices in its range; Nokia, HTC, Samsung and Huawei. While the first three heavyweights already introduced their devices before the unveiling of the OS, Huawei decided to wait to release their Windows Phone.
It seems that the American government (and some businesses) are trying in all possible ways to declare Huawei an undesirable partner in the U.S. because of alleged security reasons. They could blame them, or they already have, because of something that possibly was not the direct fault of Huawei, but they are associated with it. Reuters has come into possession of documents showing that Iranian Huawei partner Soda Gostar Persian Vista and Iranian telecommunications operator MTN IranCell in November last year tried to sell American antennas. When ordering telecommunication accessories for cell phone towers, German manufacturer Soda Gostar placed an order for 36 antennas in that are produced for Huawei's telecom towers by American producer Andrew LLC. The equipment was to be delivered on the 3rd of February this year.
Huawei will welcome a new member of their smartphone family this month; the Ascend G600 comes with Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich. So far it is not known in which countries the Ascend G600 will be available first, but according to an official announcement they will start distribution for the German market in December. The initial price for device the device is expected to be €300. Shao Yang, Chief marketing officer said that “We are very excited to introduce the new Huawei Ascend G600, which gives more functionality and power for people who expect more from their technology“.
