Huawei releases new Emotion UI for Android 4.0 ICS
The bad news though is that the skin is available only for China in the moment and works with the Huawei Ascend P1 and P1E, with the Ascend D quad also likely to get it once it launches. It’s a pity because at least the first impression from this skin is of a clean, well executed attempt. It may not be better than stock Android, but some variety is always welcome.
Huawei summarizes the work it’s done by saying the new Emotion UI comes with plenty of scene modes, access to the Huawei cloud, intelligent guidance, voice assistant (but only in Chinese) and personalized looks.
You can get the Emotion UI beta for ICS straight from the official website at the source link below, if you’re in China and sporting a Huawei phone.

Looks like iOS & Touchwiz had a one night stand & their offspring goes by the name Emotion UI.

I have to say that I'm not too impressed with the UI, but I would like to see if there are any special functionality that makes it differ from the rest of competition. Still, appearance-wise, I'm not sold on it.

Emotion UI gives more that the Traditional Android Features. There is well initial response for Emotion UI.
