Rumored: Huawei U8230

17+ Androids Assault the iPhone
By

Huawei may not be a name you associate with mobile phones. In fact, it may not even be a name you’ve heard at all. However, Huawei is a leading company in data communications, so an Android phone certainly isn’t out of reach. The U8230 is a very ambitious dive into the Android arena. It is expected to have a 3.5" capacitive touch screen, much like the iPhone, but perhaps taking it a step further, using an OLED display. On the reverse side, there is a 3.2 MP camera, which is another iPhone-like feature. Even the general design is very iPhone-like. It’s fairly evident that the U8230 is intended to be a direct competitor to Apple's famous smart phone, capable of going blow for blow with its hardware. While the launch date is undisclosed, it’s rumored that T-Mobile will scoop up the U8230 and call it the Pulse, to be released by October 2, at least in The Netherlands.

    the Huawei U8220 is sold as the T-mobile pulse in several coutnries in europe for some time now.

    its basically the same as U8230. wich is sold in several different countries. (custom roms for the pulse based on U8230 rom are available to get rid of the t-mobile branding and stuff from the pulse.)


    i do believe there is a pulse 2 or pulse mini announced but i dont have the excact details
