Huawei Technologies has just announced that they'll be bringing an Android-powered device in the first half of 2009. Huawei has typically focused on cheaper, lower-end phones but have realigned their focus toward smartphones with customization capabilities.

Huawei will not sell phone directly to end users, which mean the branding on the phone won't be theirs. More and more phone makers and big shakers are announcing their Android plans. It looks like this Android thing will get preeetyy popular, eh?
