Huawei shows mobile handsets based on Android and Windows Mobile
Huawei Technologies Co., Ltd. has showcased two new smartphones at CommunicAsia 2009 in Singapore, the Android-powered "U8230" and the Windows Mobile-based "C8000".

The new smartphones were being exhibited in advance of their commercial release in the second half of 2009.

The Android-powered U8230 smartphone allows users to switch between full and half QWERTY keyboards and to navigate programs easily via a 3.5-inch LCD touch screen. The Huawei U8230 uses the Google Chrome Internet browser and supports a variety of Google applications such as Google Map, Google Search and Google Talk.

It is also fitted with a battery which has a capacity of 1500 mAH - the longest battery capacity among Android-powered handsets currently available.

The C8000, which supports Windows Mobile operating software, incorporates a 3-D menu graphic user interface (GUI) and an independent display adapter which enables the smooth presentation of video files and DVD-quality pictures on a 2.8-inch touch screen.

With optimized power management, the new handset is capable of playing video files continuously for six to eight hours.

"Having joined the Open Handset Alliance in 2008, Huawei is rapidly moving forward with the development of cutting-edge high-end handsets, especially smartphones powered by Android and Windows Mobile operating systems," said Glory Chueng, the spokesperson of Huawei Terminals. "The U8230 and the C8000 handsets on display here at CommunicAsia take the interactivity experience of smartphones to a whole new level and Huawei is looking forward to working with our customers to bring them to market later this year."

Huawei plans to launch a series of touchscreen handsets that support WCDMA, CDMA, and TD-SCDMA standards in the second half of 2009. Meanwhile, Huawei's progress in handset sales is gaining momentum, with shipments of CDMA handsets recently surpassing the 50 million mark.
