We’ve been jawing about the Windows Phone 8-powered Huawei Ascend W1 for what feels like forever. Indeed, it was September last year when the name first materialised.
Fast-forward six months, and O2 will exclusively sell the Huawei Ascend W1 in the United Kingdoms – from March 7. That’s, like, a week tomorrow.
Interested? You’ll be able to grab the Huawei Ascend W1 on O2 PAYG for £119.99 (in store and online), while the phone is available for free on contracts starting at £13.50PM.
As for Huawei Ascend W1 colours, it’ll initially land in Electric Blue, followed by an Electric Pink model on March 18.
Huawei Ascend W1 specs include a 4in IPS display (480 x 800), 1.2GHz dual-core Qualcomm processor, 1,950mAh battery, 5MP rear camera, and 4GB internal storage – augmentable via microSD.
Those specs put the Huawei Ascend W1 roughly head-to-head with the Nokia Lumia 620, which is currently going for £179.99 on O2 PAYG (has been as low as £119.99). Actually, it appears to be sold out at the mo. Interesting.
