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...

For sure, they do make a quite credible 3g product. Although they arenīt known for phones, why not.

stab116, 17 Jun 2009I don't trust Huawei.As mentioned by others, Huawei has been making other "back end" products like wireless broadband USB's, just that most consumers can't really see the brand name.

When you said you don't trust Huawei, just curious did you say the same thing about Dopod about 5 years ago?

Actually i'm using Huawei HSDPA modem for 2 years now and still working Good as new so I trust Huawei.. Maybe its just same performance as the phone... just my opinion

We've had the HTC Magic as our lead phone for a few weeks now, no-one has shown the least bit of interest in them.

Looks much like Touch HD, which i really like.

  • Dimas

is there Wifi, Gps, HSPA, autofokus+makro and cheap price?

Android really need to step it up when it comes to hardware, 3,2Mpixel camera (maybe no video recording) and a low res screen is not what I'm looking for in a phone in 2009.

i am using Huawei HSDPA modem for almost a year, and nothing's wrong with the modem, it's doing just fine up until now.

so, i think these Huawei products deserve a chance to prove themself to us.
