Hopefully they're give a good off-contract price so I can get rid of my Evo to get the unlocked version, because that is one sick looking phone, especially with pure ICS!

Is the device really that thin? I mean from the photos they look on par to the current Samsung Skyrocket which in it's self is extreamly thin. By the way is'nt it funny how Samsung who is alway accused imitating phone designs is now clearly being imitated by Huawei.

They are slightly thinner then the Galaxy S2 phones from Samsung.. Keep in mind here that we are dealing with millimeters so it isn't a massive difference. When held next to the Epic 4G Touch on Sprint the Huawei devices were thinner

I want to see benchmarks for this, because this ti OMAP 4460 processor clocked at 1.5ghz, while ICS is already optimized for ti OMAP processors, should give outstanding benchmark, considering the nexus' 1.2ghz processor of the same kind is nearly on par with the sgs2's exynos.

It's like a what the Nexus would have been like if it were based off the S2...

Ok now that i see they really can produce a nice phone, I'll try to figure out how to pronounce their name...
Is that how you say it?

I speak Chinese, its pronounced hwah-way. Hwah sounds like the beginning of the word "what" if you add an h sound to the beginning and way just sounds like the word way.

When I first heard of Huawei, I always just saw them as another ZTE. A Chinese OEM making cheap, but affordable phones for the prepaid carriers in US like Cricket and MetroPCS. However, they have stepped their game up I see. Very nice phone.

We had an international student from Korea and he had a Huawei, it was a nice phone. I'll be looking at these guys when I get my next phone.
