While the Chinese company Huawei has quietly released high-end devices like the Huawei Ascend P1 and the Huawei Ascend D Quad, they are still not a brand on the tip of the average American’s tongue. In an effort to change this, their next move is to produce two devices released by T-Mobile under the “myTouch” name. Starting in 2009, HTC and later LG had released phones under the myTouch branding. The new Huawei devices should be released sometime in the late spring of this year. The phones, named U8680 and U8730, are said to be identical other than the keyboard.
The only specs that have been released are the 480 x 800 WVGA resolution, and the fact that they will run Android 2.3 Gingerbread.
We don’t have much information to go on, but from the picture the devices look to have a screen size of 4 inches and are probably not high-end or expensive devices. T-Mobile has also released a Huawei tablet, called the T-Mobile Springboard. Maybe this is the start of Huawei releasing some high-end phones for T-Mobile. Huawei is well on its way to being a household name in the US.
