Today, during CommunicAsia 2009, Huawei has officially unveiled its first Android smartphone – the U8230 – and a new Windows Mobile handset, the C8000.
Huawei U8230 looks slightly different from the company’s Android prototype seen back in February, although the overall aspect has not been changed.
Feature-wise, the U8230 offers a wide 3.5 inch touchscreen display (unknown resolution), on-screen QWERTY keyboard, trackball, a 3.2MP camera, various Google apps and a 1,500 mAh battery.
Next we have the Windows Mobile Huawei C8000, which reminds me of HTC’s Touch 3G:
Its features include a 2.8 inch touchscreen display, 3D UI, and “a unique independent display adapter which enables the smooth presentation of video files and DVD-quality pictures.”
Both of Huawei’s new smartphones will be commercially available in the second half of 2009. As previously reported, the Android U8230 will probably be launched by T-Mobile and TIM, among others. No word yet on pricing.
