Huawei Takes on the U.S.
Huawei is holding a press event on the first day of CTIA to discuss its “U.S. device strategy.” The Chinese company recently announced a handful of Android phones, like the $30 Huawei Impulse 4G on AT&T. It is likely we’ll see more inexpensive smartphones at the show, perhaps U.S. versions of its Europe and Asia phones.
Huawei is also rumored to release a $200 tablet with T-Mobile. Leaked photos on Tmonews.com indicate that it will have a 7-inch display, a dual-core processor and run the latest version of Honeycomb. If this rumor pans out, this tablet will be a great introduction for the company to U.S. consumers. The price is directly competitive with the Amazon Fire, but it might appeal to users who want that pure Android experience.
