Windows Phone 8 handset by Huawei to be revealed next week
Ever since Windows Phone 8 was officially announced, we knew that Huawei was planning on joining the party with a smartphone of its own. And it looks like it won't be long until we get to see the company's first WP8 handset as that is rumored to be announced on September 25. 

Dubbed Huawei Ascend W1, the handset will be available in a variety of colors, including black, white, blue, and pink. It will take a while before anyone gets to check it out first hand, however, as it is scheduled to hit the market in November or December, according to Chinese Windows Phone fan site WINP. China, Europe, and the U.S. are among the markets where the smartphone is going to be available. As far as pricing goes, no specific figures have been revealed, although the Huawei Ascend W1 is said to be positioned in the same category with the Nokia Lumia 920.

And that's pretty much all we have for now, with the looks and hardware configuration of the Huawei Ascend W1 remaining a mystery. If the rumored announcement date turns out to be correct, however, it won't be long until we know what Huawei has in store for us.
