Huawei introducing Ideos X5 Android phone
We're expecting a new smartphone to join the Android parade at CES, and it comes from Chinese manufacturer Huawei.
LAS VEGAS--Huawei will be pushing further into U.S. markets this week at CES. The mobile phone maker is expected to introduce the Android-powered Huawei Ideos X5 tomorrow, the first official day of the yearly ginormous electronics show.
The Ideos X5 runs Android 2.2 (Froyo), with solid midrange specs. It has a 3.8-inch touch-screen display (800x480 pixels) and an 800MHz Qualcomm processor, Engadget reports. We're also looking at a 5-megapixel camera that captures 720p HD video and a VGA front-facing camera. Higher-end Android smartphones are routinely showing 1.3-megapixel shooters on the front.
CNET Australia gave its first impressions of a similar handset in early December.
It's good to see Huawei introduce competitive smartphones in the U.S., where the manufacturer is little-known. The
