Huawei U8230 is the company's first Android smartphone

17 June, 2009

The Chinese-based manufacturer Huawei teased us with a dummy of their future Android phone back in February at the MWC 2009, but this time it's the real deal - it even has its own model name, the U8230.

It's not the first time we're hearing of Huawei's plans on stepping into the Android world but now they probably actually have a working phone to showcase.

Aside from running the Android OS ver. 1.5, the new Huawei U8230 also sports a large 3.5-inch touchscreen, 3.2 megapixel snapper and powerful 1500 mAh battery.

As a true Android device, the U8230 comes with apps like Google Maps, Google Search, Google Talk.

The other features of the Huawei U8230 haven't been revealed yet but since the smartphone is expected to hit the shelves some time in the second half of 2009 we should hear more of it in the near future.
