Huawei IDEOS Devices Get Detailed a Tiny Bit More

Huawei has formally announced two new Android devices in their IDEOS lineup today with the X3 smart phone and S7 Slim tablet.  Unfortunately, the company still seems to be a bit shy in divulging all the details for these two units.  So, we’ll just pass along what do we know for sure.

The Huawei IDEOS X3 features an ultra slim design measuring only 11.2 mm in thickness and offers a 3.2-inch capacitive HVGA touch screen and a 3.2-megapixel front-facing camera.  According to Huawei, this is the slimmest device you’ll find on the market when it comes to this size screen.  The Huawei Handset Over-the-Air and Online Upgrade (HOTA) ensures that Android updates are done in a timely and efficient manner.  Look for the IDEOS X3 to hit Japan (SOFTBANK MOBILE Corp.) in the Spring of 2011 at a price of less than $200 US.

On the tablet side of things, the Huawei IDEOS S7 Slim runs Android 2.2 and features support for  HD video (720p), 3G, WiFi (802.11 b/h/n), and Bluetooth connectivity.  Priced under $300 US, it will arrive in April.

Don’t be surprised to see either of this come to the United States this Spring.  T-Mobile offers the Huawei Comet while Best Buy sells the first S7 tablet.  As the company looks to get its foot in the door, we anticipate multiple iterations of these devices.
