Enterprise Mobility: Huawei Ascend Ice Cream Sandwich Smartphones Storm CES
LAS VEGAS-Huawei is a leading smartphone provider in Asia, providing low-cost Android smartphones targeting the low-end of the market at a time when Samsung has positively dominated Android handset sales worldwide. Huawei also wants to move deeper into the U.S. market, and it could well do so with its latest models. Here at the 2012 Consumer Electronics Show, Huawei just unleashed three interesting Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich handsets that we can't imagine would sell at anything but a premium price given their built-in firepower. They are the Ascend P1 and P1 S, which is now the world's thinnest smartphone, and the Ascend P1 LTE (Long Term Evolution) handsets. The Huawei Ascend P1 and P1 S will be available in Europe, Asia-Pacific, North America, Australia, Middle East and China in April, targeting Samsung's massive market share. During the show, eWEEK had some hands-on time to test the new phones' features shown in this slide show.
