Huawei announces U8230 and C8000 smartphones

Fresh from CommuniAsia 2009, Huawei has announced two handsets destined to get lost amongst the continued onslaught of full touchscreen kit. No, they’re by no means poor devices of course — they just offer very little in the way of excitement or differentiating factors. Starting with the U8230, pictured top right and notable thanks only to its Android OS, specs include a 3.5-inch touchscreen, 3.2 megapixel camera and a sizable 1500 mAh battery. The Windows Mobile-powered C8000, pictured above to the left, features a 2.8-inch touchscreen, some kind of 3D UI band-aid, an independent display adapter for smooth media playback and a claimed six to eight hours of continuous video playback on a single charge. Pricing has not yet been revealed but both handsets should hit Asia and Europe some time in the second half.
