Huawei U8800 IDEOS X5
> In reply to Cranky @ 2011-01-02 12:23 from PHWI - click to readAs others have said the handset works perfectly well on all other networks apart from Telstra nextG 850mhz network. Optus and Vodafone networks and all the resellers from those networks will accept the phone without issues since they run on 2100mhz.
It will currently also work on the Telstra/3 partnership 3G network that runs on 2100mhz and is found in the major cities but this network will be shut down in the near future so it's not recommended that Telstra users buy in to this phone.

^ Fixed. This phone will work perfectly fine on any 3G network in Australia *other* than Telstra.

First how it is possible that releas date is may 2011 when it is relesed in finland way back in december 2010. And the price is about 289 € so the price tag of 18000 $ isn't possible .

China is not a country managed by fools, they are really smart to first ensure the market type and then manufacture products and price them accordingly. For e.g, ZTE manufactures the Blade and Racer however Dell re-brands the handsets and sells them in India for almost double the cost. ZTE Blade costs $200 in the US and UK however Dell sells it for 16k in India (XCD 35). Considering that, expect the price to be a little steep.

Over that price point, you'll probably get Micromax A60 which has a 2.8 resistive screen, 600 MHz processor and a lame battery life. Be in your senses before you post something like this. Also, expect the handset to be launched by another manufacturer which probably re-brands it (very likely Spice) at a price point around 13k. I don't want to sound rude here but your comments/posts may misguide someone.
