Images and info surface about Huawei's upcoming Windows Phone

Images and info surface about Huawei's upcoming Windows Phone
Just a few days ago, Huawei reaffirmed its commitment to the Windows Phone ecosystem. Companies have been feeling the need to do this because of Microsoft's decision to purchase Nokia, which already controls about 80 to 90% of Windows Phone sales. However, at the time we didn't really get any information about any devices that Huawei was working on.

Some new information has surfaced concerning Huawei's upcoming Windows Phone device. Word has it that Huawei will continue its naming tradition and follow its previous Windows Phones, the Ascend W1 and W2, and this new device will be called the Ascend W3. This new Windows Phone handset is said to take design elements from a couple of Huawei's Android devices: the Huawei Ascend D2 and P6. It is also said to have an aluminum body in order to make it thinner and lighter than previous models. 

And, we have a picture of the W3, which seems to match the description. It does share the same sharply rounded corners of other Huawei devices. It also looks to be adding in the colors that are quickly becoming standard with smartphone choices. So far, there is no word on release date or other specs.

They have almost no other competition in this field besides Nokia and occasIonally Samsung. If they're not going to put out a blockbuster device that challenges the Lumia series in some degree, I don't see why they're wasting R & D funds to build these devises.

It needs to stand out somehow. Whether it be battery, camera, software or other hardware distinguishes for it to be relevant.

The yellow one is ugly as hell.

They look cheap but durable, I'm thinking they've a hit.
