It's hoping to reach more U.S. customers
Huawei is now selling its Ascend P1 smartphone through Amazon in an attempt to attract customers from the U.S. to its products.
Huawei is a
Chinese telecommunications maker
that has made little headway as far as sales go in the United States, but through the use of Amazon, the company is looking to reach this audience.
The Ascend P1 is an Android-powered smartphone with a 4.3-inch Super AMOLED display, a 1.5 GHz dual-core processor, an 8 MP camera and 1 GB of RAM. It's also very slim at 7.6 millimeters.
“The Ascend P1 is perfect for consumers looking to get the most out of their device,” said Michael Chuang, Executive Vice President of Huawei Device USA. “Whether it’s for playing games, streaming music and videos, or sharing multimedia in the home or workplace, the Ascend P1 offers unparalleled performance and a truly unique mobile experience.”
Huawei hopes to compete with other Android-powered devices like those made by Samsung. Android is the
most popular smartphone operating system in the U.S.
, followed by iOS.
The Ascend P1 is available unlocked for
$449.99 on Amazon
Earlier this week, Huawei found itself in hot water when it allegedly
offered a bid
€1.3M ($1.7 million USD) worth of equipment to Mobile Telecommunication Comp. of Iran (MCI).
Huawei and other Chinese telecommunication firms are contractually forbidden from reselling electronics from U.S. companies to Iran, and doing so could hurt their relationship with U.S. OEMs.
Huawei denied ever producing the document, and instead blamed
one of its major local partners, Skycom Tech Co Ltd.

Screen size? depends on the user
Processor speed? I bet your phone is idling 98% of the time.
8mp camera? Small sensor size with the red center issue.
NFC? I have NFC on my phone but have never used it.
High end android phones are basically the same, just different bodies and brand names.
