Pocket-Lint: Huawei, the people that most probably make your Mobile broadband dongle (if you’ve got one of course), are continuing their march into the smartphone business with the launch of yet another Android phone the Huawei Ideos X5, and guess what, that’s right we tracked it down at mobile world congress to have a quick play.
Cnet - When we first saw it at CES, the Android 2.2-powered Huawei Ideos X5 (U8800) left a good impression. Its trim body has a premium feel that accentuates a large screen, and the specs are more upmarket than the more entry-level Huawei Ascend. There's a 5-megapixel camera, an 800MHz processor, and 720p HD video capture and playback.
Engadget: Of the manifold riches sure to unloaded by the fine folks at Huawei at this year's CES, be on the lookout for the IDEOS X5. The Android 2.2 smartphone that we first saw yesterday features a 3.8-inch multitouch screen, SWYPE input, a 5 megapixel camera with 720p video, FM radio, and Flash 10.1 -- all in a svelte 11.4mm thick package. Available in Singapore, Hong Kong and New Zealand beginning this month, with a U.S. carrier to be announced. Keep an eye on this space for news from the launch later today.
