Huawei's Android iPhone phone

Well, sort of - the pictures it's put out fall more in the 'concept mock-up' category than the 'in someone's hands' section. And they're clearly inspired by a certain famous fruity phone: witness the positioning round menu button and earpiece slit, note the shiny black faceplate and touch-sensitive screen.

Huawei said it has co-developed "a robust and user-friendly interface" in order to offer "a powerful customer experience that is able to evolve with operators’ differentiation requirements".

Aimed at operators

'Operators' is key: Huawei is keen to offer the handset to carriers who - as they do with its 3G modems - rebadge it as their own.

Huawei said little - well, nowt - about the unnamed Android phone's capabilities or tech specs. ®
