Huawei targets UK with sub-£100 smartphone

Set Blighty a-Blaze

The Essential Guide to IT Transformation

Huawei is finally ready to launch a presence of its own in the UK, bringing its promised sub-£100 smartphone to Blighty next month.

Huawei Blaze

Unfortunately, the Blaze is rather average, with its 3.2in, 320 x 480 display, 3.2Mp camera and 512MB of storage. This can be expanded by up to 32GB with Micro SD card.

Blaze runs Android 2.3 Gingerbread, and packs a 600MHz processor and 256MB of Ram. Not amazing, but comparable to phones such as the HTC Wildfire, and Huawei's hot-headed handset certainly clocks in cheaper.

The Blaze is Huawei's first Android smartphone to sell in Blighty without a network operator's name on it.

Those interested can grab a Blaze for £99 from Phones4U or Tesco Mobile this October. ®
