Huawei is coming up in the world. We need more mid-to-high-end devices here in the US (hopefully at competitive prices). I'm all for another custom Android UI after I fell in love with the Kindle Fire's UI.

I have a feeling that the other manufacturers are not worried about Huawei!

Who sells Huawei aside from T-Mobile? The D Quad should be coming to TMO if you ask me.

But the article clearly says CDMA/LTE so T-Mobile is out, its either Sprint or Verizon. I would assume Sprint as another launch device. I guess it could be MetroPCS or Cellular One I suppose.
Also Verizon and Sprint sell Huawei and ZTE (not smartphones) but under their own brand name.

Thanks for the answer at the bottom there but your top part doesn't make sense. There is no connection between "a Huawei CDMA/LTE device will be announced for a US carrier next month" and "Huawei is also pitching its flagships like the quad-core Ascend D and the Ascend P1 S to US carriers".
So T-Mobile is not out of anything.

They are pitching to all carriers. Huawei is like HTC was a few years ago, they are making a lot of carrier branded equipment to get known.
This saddens me. I was really hoping Huawei would stand out of the crowd by being the high powered stock android choice with promised super fast updates.

I agree with you completely. Maybe they will still decide to go back to stock android though. I will not give up hope in them yet.

I think He's referring to the unknown flagship phone mentioned.

Lol more fragmentation and slow updates and fc from a bloated android ecosystem

No matter what you will say against android, you can't stop people from buying it. You should be worried now coz once Huawei high end phones come to US, your iphone market share will continue to diminish. Huawei has a lot offer, its specs can compete with iphone. Don't forget also no os is perfect including your ios.

Another manufacturer is always welcomed in the Android market as it will spur the others to improve....or get out.
