The Mysterious (and iPhone-ish) Huawei Android Touchphone

Even though folks like Samsung failed to deliver anything Android-ish at MWC, an intriguing handset from Huawei was on display, albeit a non-working prototype. The Huawei Android phone looks an awful lot like the iPhone 2G I sold on eBay not long ago.

Although this prototype lacks the hardware buttons that Android requires for normal operation, Huawei has revealed that they are working with an "established design consultancy" to customize their own user interface. Huawei also reports that this mystery Android phone will be available sometime in Q3 '09, rebranded through a yet-unnamed wireless carrier.

iPhone-ish or not, it would be nice to have more Android handsets in the marketplace.
