Huawei Technologies To Offer More Android Handsets

Huawei_LogoThis shouldn’t come as much of a surprise, but Huawei Technologies is reporting that they plan to release multiple Android-base phones over the coming months.  Why is this not a surprise?  Well, they are members of the Open Handset Alliance.  It’s practically expected.

China-based Huawei will launch a “series” of handsets in Europe, the Asia Pacific and Latin America.  Their first handset, the Pulse is already selling through T-Mobile U.K. and is available on a pay-as-you-go plan.

While on the subject of Huaewei’s Pulse handset, it should be noted that a variant (model U8220-6) just picked up some FCC approval.  With 3G support and 850/900MHz bands, it could be headed for Bell, Telus, Rogers, Fido, or maybe AT&T.  As EngadgetMobile points out, it’s unlikely that would be the first Android handset to land on Ma Bell.
