Huawei delivers latest Android phone

Telecommunications and mobile device manufacturer Huawei has unveiled its next Google mobile OS handset, the IDEOS X5 – following on from the original IDEOS.

The newest addition to the IDEOS family arrives running Android ‘Froyo’ 2.2, with a 3.8-inch 800x480 capacitive multi-touch screen, a 5 megapixel flash enabled camera capable of HD video recording with 4GB of storage on-board.

Preinstalled on the X5 is Documents To Go, for accessing various Office suite files with calendar management tools where the phone also natively supports Flash 10.1.

Huawei is well known for producing OEM products, in much the same way as HTC once was with their SPV devices on Orange.

The makers of the IDEOS X5 brought out their first Android ‘Froyo’ handset in September last year, which sold more than one million units in just two months and in over 70 different countries.

Huawei is the manufacturer of the popular MIFI devices for Three, where the company also produced T-Mobile’s much acclaimed pay as you go low cost Android Pulse handset from 2009.

Huawei IDEOS X5 is due to arrive sometime after January, no prices have been announced but expect the cost to be competitive or even appear rebranded as a network named phone.
