Huawei IDEOS X5 Hands-on

Huawei IDEOS X5 Hands-on
You might have gotten dizzy with all the announced heavyweights at CES, but it's not all about the high-end devices, you know. The Huawei IDEOS X5 is a 3.8-inch mid-end device coming on AT&T with Froyo, running on a 800MHz Qualcomm MSM7230 CPU. Nothing new and grounbreaking, you might say, but someone has to take care of the mid-range segment, right? Boy, just when did we start considering phones with 3.8” screens mid-end...

In any case, the IDEOS X5 does not feel like anything more than a typical mainstream device, but still it looks like a fairly balanced performer.

The handset will be one of a couple upcoming smartphones by Huawei to launch in the States with major US carriers.

Hi, I received my U8800H two days ago. Thus far very happy with it. Is it possible to synchronise my phone with my laptop ie. my MS Outlook Calender with my phone? Do I need special software (like Nokia PC Suite)? If so, where can I obtain this, because I did not receive any with the phone. Thanks, Izak
