Although we’ve been expecting Huawei to make a strong push towards the high-end smartphone market niche this year, the charge has been delayed for some reason. Neither the Ascend D Quad, nor the P1 and P1 S have been released in the US, and we don’t even have official release dates for the phones. In the lower end sector, however, Huawei is making efforts to keep customers happy. The U8660 Honor, a mid-ranger available in the US at AT&T, has just received the much awaited Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich update, available for download at this link. Other low-end and…

With Huawei’s attempts to enter the US market, it is only a matter of time before it chooses to pair up with a carrier. Recently though, the Huawei Honor was spotted filing an FCC with AT&T’s HSPA+ and 3G bands. Even though this isn’t a definite thing yet, its involvement with AT&T carrier is already being considered as a huge possibility; that and its availability through online retailers. One of the reasons why people are attracted to the Honor is because it is a mid-range device that comes pretty cheap. Apart from a beautiful design, it also has a powerful…

Battery power is always precious when it comes to our gadgets. Of course, no one likes to be stuck near a wall outlet because his/her battery would just run out of juice too quickly. We always want our gadgets to be free of wires. That’s actually the main reason why we call them mobile devices–because we can bring them anywhere. Most Android smartphones are very powerful; they can do so many things for you. The powerful nature of Android devices can, most of the time, be accompanied by battery issues, though. Today we are going to check out the Huawei…

I’ve been watching Huawei lately, and I like to compare their rise in the smartphone market with the rise of HTC. Just like HTC, they were once just an OEM for other companies, making phones under those companies’ brands. They still do that, but they are increasingly becoming more popular in the smartphone market under their own brand name. That’s didn’t happen by accident, though. They are starting to make higher and higher quality phones, with higher end specs, that can become very competitive product-wise with other phones from more well-known players. Just like HTC, they aren’t going to become…

Huawei has been known for low-cost, entry-level to mid-range handsets and mobile devices. But, with its upcoming Huawei Honor U8860, the Chinese manufacturer might have something that starts Huawei’s ascent to the high-end range of Android devices. Just recently announced, the Huawei Honor U8860 is the handset maker’s flagship HSPA+-capable handset. This new smart phone has UMTS 900 MHz/1200 MHz HSDPA connectivity, which means it is currently a dual-band phone limited to Asia and Europe only, but the device has also been reported for launching in November in the U.S. as the Huawei Glory. Estimated retail price of the Huawei…
