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.
