Huawei Ascend D1 Q to hop on the quad-core bandwagon come MWC

Huawei Ascend D1 Q to hop on the quad-core bandwagon come MWC
Huawei's value-for-money Android offerings are starting to make a dent in our collective geeky conscience, and the latest rumor confirms that the company is determined to continue that trend.

Come MWC in two weeks, Huawei Ascend D1 Q is expected to be announced, with quad-core Tegra 3 CPU of its own, making it one of the first such smatphones unveiled. The device will allegedly be part of a new Diamond series, which is to entail  “the fastest and most high-performing smartphones.

This Diamond series is a step up from the Platinum one, where the thinnest Android handset, the Huawei P1 S belongs, which we saw announced at the CES expo last month. 

Besides the quad-core Ascend D1 Q, at the MWC Huawei is expected to unveil a new tablet, the MediaPad 10, which, judging from the name, will be a 10-incher, and likely feature Android Ice Cream Sandwich onboard. Whatever Huawei announces, we are pretty positive it will set a new precedent for pricing compared to features, so we can't wait to handle the Huawei Ascend D1 Q and the MediaPad 10 in two weeks.

It won't. It is Hauwei for Gods sake. I would still rather buy Motorola Razr Maxx or Xperia S (or ion) or something from HTC similarly priced as those three above, than Hauwei. Ok, not to be completely unfair, I would buy it if its price would be half of those (overpriced) brands {talking about Apple here...} new phones - but only for my second phone, because when it comes to those (un-proven) brands, you never know when it will die on you....

"un-proven"? Huawei has been HUGE in China(the biggest market for an extensive variety of commodities, mobile phones included), for almost 2 decades. Their reputation in China is similar to that of Samsung or Apple in U.S. Crawl out of your little hole and take a look at the world before labelling brands as "un-proven".

That was rather quick of Huawei to develop a quad-core smartphone. The more information revealed about what the company is doing the more I'm anticipating the release of their phones. I also love the name of their 2 series, Diamond and Platinum.
