Huawei today announced its first Windows Phone 8 smartphone Huawei W1 will go on sale at select Walmart stores in the United States later this month.
The Huawei W1 features a 1.2GHz dual-core processor, a 4'' IPS LCD touch screen made of Gorilla glass, and 5MP camera with 0.3MP front-facing camera, LED flash, 4X digital zoom, auto focus and a quick access button.
"The Huawei W1 brings consumers a truly compelling alternative to what's currently in the marketplace - a device that is competitively priced with an unlimited 30-day no-contract plan," said Michael Chuang , Executive Vice President at Huawei Device USA.
Although the Microsoft spokesman said that the phone would be offered at a "competitive price point", he didn't say what that price would be.
