Huawei's Ascend P1 smartphone has finally landed in the U.S.
The device, which made its debut at the Consumer Electronics Show last year and, is available starting today on Amazon for $449. At that price, consumers will get it unlocked and be able to run it on AT&T or T-Mobile networks.
The handset comes with a 4.3-inch super AMOLED dislpay and 8-megapixel camera. The Ascend P1 is 7.69 mm thick, making it just slightly thicker than Apple's iPhone 5. The Android-based handset also comes with a 1.5GHz dual-core processor, Android 4.0 (Ice Cream Sandwich), and 5.1-channel Dolby Surround Sound support.
Huawei's device is one of the few high-end products from the company to actually make its way to the States. In most cases, Huawei's higher-end products never make it here.
In, CNET editor Jessica Dolcourt awarded the handset three-and-a-half stars out of five, or a "very good" rating. Dolcourt liked the device's "great specs and striking design," but thought that its camera and call quality caused it to fall "short of its potential."
