Huawei to launch a series of Android devices
PCWorld.com are reporting that Huawei, the handset manufacturer responsible for bringing us the Pulse, are set to offer a few more phones before the year is up. According to a spokeswomen speaking on behalf of the company, Huawei will continue to focus on the European market, as well as shores closer to home in the form of Asia Pacific. Latin America will also get a look in, but not much was said about the North American market. These regions will receive a “series” of new Android devices, but other details were fairly sketchy to say the least.
The Huawei Pulse is a fairly low-end device, especially compared to the forthcoming Sony Ericsson X10 and the Motorola Droid that Michael has already reviewed. Indeed, Huawei claimed that the Pulse was the world’s first Android based handset that was available on Pay-As-You-Go schemes. Huawei are based out of China, and this is one of the primary reasons that they are able to keep the cost of their devices down. There has been news that other Chinese based manufacturers (Haier and Beyond Radio Technology ) will also release Android devices into Europe in the New Year too. Android is a perfect platform for these types of companies as it is an out-of-the-box user interface and software solution that removes a lot of the complexities of supporting your own software.
