Huawei to offer Ascend P1 through Amazon for US customers

If you’ve been itching to get your hands on a Huawei Ascend P1 in the States, you’ll now be able to get one directly through Amazon without jumping through hoops to get one imported. Huawei will be offering the phone unlocked for $450 on Amazon, although without LTE. At that price point, the dual-core, 4.3 inch phone may have a hard time competing with the Nexus 4, but for those of you that can’t seem to buy a Nexus 4 no matter how hard you try, this may be a good second option. Anyone going to pick one of these up?
