BARCELONA, Spain--Though it's been building its reputation in the last few months with models like the T-Mobile Tap and the Huawei M750, Chinese manufacturer Huawei doesn't have a huge presence in the United States. It takes a visit to its stand at Mobile World Congress to show what the company has up its sleeve.
Like everywhere else in Barcelona, Google Android took center stage for Huawei. The company didn't stage a low-put press event--and we thank them for that--but it rolled out four new Android phones. Here are the basics, and be sure to check out our Huawei photo gallery for a closer look at the phones.
Huawei U8800 The most high-end device of the bunch, it runs Android 2.1, supports HSPA+ networks, and offers a 3.8-inch display.
Huawei U8300 The yellow version reminds us of a waffle, so you can't deny that the U8300 is unique. Aimed at the youth market, it has a full keyboard and a feature set that centers on messaging and social networking.
T-Mobile Pulse Mini (Huawei U8110) Already headed to T-Mobile in Europe, the Pulse Mini has a 2.8-inch touch screen, a 3.2-megapixel camera, Bluetooth, a 3.5mm headset jack, a media player, 300MB of internal memory, a memory card slot, and USB mass storage.
Huaweu U8100 An entry-level device, the U8100 comes with a 2.8-inch QVGA display, a 3.2-megapixel camera, Wi-Fi, and Bluetooth.
