We all know Huawei is working on a Windows Phone 8 device. We’ve seen it leaked for few times in the past and the chances are the Ascend W1 will be unveiled at the upcoming CES in Las Vegas (perhaps even alongside a better model, Ascend W2). Now we have a price to add to the mix – according to Techblog.gr, Huawei’s baby will cost less than $200 off-contract. That’s an amazing price point and the one that could help propel Microsoft’s platform to the new heights.
The same website also had a chance to play with the Ascend W1 and has even posted a video about it on YouTube. Unfortunately, the Chinese company’s PR/marketing department didn’t like that and the clip has been removed in the meantime.
Still we know all the specs – Huawei’s baby will come with a 4-inch WVGA touchscreen, 1.2GHz dual-core processor, 5-megapixel rear-facing camera, NFC capability, Wi-Fi, GPS, Bluetooth and a 2000mAh battery.
