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 to sell €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.

You know a company is clueless when it doesn't bother to change it's brand name and logo for a new market.
