Windows Phone 8-rockin’ Huawei Ascend W1 launching September 25?

Windows Phone 8-rockin’ Huawei Ascend W1 launching September 25?The Windows Phone 8 partners are slowly but surely teasing their wares in the run up to the expected October/November assault.

Nokia and Samsung have already blown their respective lids, and now Chinese manufacturer Huawei is getting in on the action, with a little something called the Ascend W1.

I say “a little something”; it’s not actually clear what size the Huawei Ascend W1 will be. Indeed, Huawei Ascend W1 specs are a complete mystery.

However, in any case, Chinese site reckons it’ll sell for 2,000 Chinese yuan, which translates to roughly £200 in our money. Sounds like we’re looking at a mid-ranger.

Oh, the Huawei Ascend W1 will also be available in four colours, namely black, white, pink and blue. And, er, that's all we know for now.

As for other Windows Phone 8 handsets, we recently met the Nokia Lumia 920, Nokia Lumia 820, and Samsung ATIV S.

HTC, meanwhile, is expected to launch its Windows Phone 8 players on Wednesday. We’ve heard whispers of a trio of handsets, namely the HTC Zenith, Rio and Accord.
