Huawei, which may be an unfamiliar company to most, has actually grown quite familiar with Android. They've released Android devices before and at MWC, they'll be showcasing four more Android phones. The U880 (pictured above) is the cream of the crop, the U8300 comes with a front facing QWERTY, and the U8100 and U8110 are targeted towards the low end. That's a solid Android portfolio if you ask us.
The U8800 is obviously the most appealing because it packs a 3.8-inch touchscreen and runs Android 2.1. It's looking like their flagship Android device and what's interesting is that it'll actually support HSPA+, so maybe we'll see this on T-Mobile one day. The other devices offer compelling features as well, the U8300 may look odd but it comes with the aforementioned front facing QWERTY keyboard. The U8100/U8110 has a 2.8-inch touchscreen and packs 2 cameras, a front-facing Camera along with the typical back facing 3.2-megapixel variety.
The U8800 is expected to release in the third quarter of 2010 while the U8100/U8110 is expected to hit Europen in the second quarter. There was no date listed for the U8300. We expect more details on these devices to come but there's no question that Huawei is positioning themselves to be the next HTC. We wish them nothing but luck.
