Huawei to launch Windows Phone 8 handsets, Windows 8 LTE tablet this year?
Huawei made a big splash on the Android front in the last few months, by introducing several new smartphones, including the quad-core Ascend D Quad, and the super-slim Ascend P1. And it looks like it may try to do a similar thing with Windows Phone.
According to Chinese website WPDang, Huawei has a team of more than 70 people who are currently working on Windows Phone devices. Reportedly, the upcoming handsets will run Windows Phone 8 Apollo, and they could be released in late 2012. One of Huawei’s WP8 devices should cost around $300.
In addition to Apollo handsets, it’s said that Huawei is also working on a Windows 8 tablet with LTE connectivity (most likely for the US market).
Last year, Huawei shipped 20 million smartphones, and the company plans to sell at least 60 million before the end of this year. Obviously, most of them will run Android.
