The Huawei Ascend W1 hangs its hat at Walmart

Earlier this month, we passed along the word from Chinese OEM Huawei, that its first Windows Phone model, the Huawei Ascend W1, would be available at Walmart. Well Walmart shoppers, the good news is that when you buy your underwear from the deep discount retailer, you can also now pick up the Huawei Ascend W1. The phone was priced at $229.88 at a store in Alabama.

The handset is paired with Straight Talk's $45/30 day plan with gives you unlimited talk, text and data with no annoying contract to sign. You might need to check the availability at your local Walmart store because the handset has yet to show up at Walmart.com. As you probably know, Walmart shoppers have an eye for a bargain, so we wonder how many units of the Ascend W1 will move considering that the Nokia Lumia 521 is priced at $129.88 at the discounter, although it is sold out at the moment.

The Huawei Ascend W1 is equipped with a 4 inch LCD screen with resolution of 480 x 800 (WVGA) which works out to a pixel density of 233ppi. A dual core 1.2GHz Qualcomm Snapdragon S4 Plus MSM8230 is under the hood, paired with the Adreno 305 GPU. Both 512MB of RAM and 4GB of native storage are aboard. A 32GB capacity microSD slot can expand storage. The back and front facing snappers come in at 5MP and.3MP respectively, and a 1950mAh battery keeps the lights on.

I know we got it at our store in Iron Mountain. We didn't sell any today but a few people were interested. Also it runs on the AT&T network.
