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.
I wanted to post this to let you know I have started an open thread over at XDA to create an open alliance with our phone and all our sister phones so all developers can come together to help one another since our phones have basically all the same hardware.
So I am on this great trip through Asia (currently in Nepal, for the curious), but unfortunately my HTC phone got wet and stopped serving me. So soon I will be going to Bangkok, and I was considering getting myself a phone there. My question is whether phones in Thailand, and especially the Huawei Ascend brand, come with a simlock? I also wonder the same for the Samsung Galaxy line.
Oh how times have changed. When Huawei showed off its flagship smartphone at CES last year, it did so in a smallish conference room with some chairs in the middle and crudites and demo phones flanking the sides.
Huawei has opened an online shop for U.S. customers based on one product, the Huawei Ascend Mate2 4G. At present, Huawei is only offering potential buyers the opportunity to sign up for their e-mail list to receive updates. Huawei touts the device’s download speeds of up to 150 Mbps on compatible networks.
