Huawei to introduce multiple Windows Phone offerings
Well the Ascend W1 is still on the agenda, but word has it that Huawei will introduce two Windows Phone 8 devices at the media event on the 25th. It is possible though that the range of the devices is different than originally thought, the Ascend W1 may be meant to compete with Nokia’s Lumia 820 and HTC 8S. Huawei’s flagship device may be the Ascend W2 which will pack hardware to take on the Lumia 920 and HTC 8X.
It will be interesting to see how these two contenders stand up against the competition. What might Huawei have to offer to make you look away from tempting offerings of Nokia, HTC and Samsung?

Hmm nice! But I want to see mid-range WP8 phones!

820 and 8S are the mid-ranged WP8 phones.
It would be nice if Huawei built a device with good build quality, not just the hardware...and their logo is just too big, and unattractive.
Maybe just the logo without the name would do just fine.

Good to see Huawei Windows Phone, i wish they could improved on the hardware side, like HTC and Nokia have been doing

and i think they should concentrate with mid range and low end!! if they want high end they need to be cheaper than nokia... but i doubt that coz microsoft is licensing its OS so huawei will pay to microsoft!

Probably nothing. Nokia will run away with WP 8 sales. HTC and Samsung will compete if they prove they are serious with promotions equal to their Android offerings.
Huawei hasn't established themselves as anything other than a good, cheap option. It seems unlikely they can do any better with WP 8. But that doesn't mean they can't be profitable, just not quite ready to tumble with the big guns yet.

The hardware looks like a carbon copy of the old Galaxy S2
