With the Mobile World Congress in Barcelona due to kick off today with 1500 vendors presenting their latest ideas, smartphones and tablets it is going to be very easy to be lost in the crowd, particularly if you don't have the biggest name.
One way to get noticed is to have a pre-event press release and gathering on the day before launch and this is just what Huawei
has done announcing what they call the world's 'fastest' smartphone. The Android powered Ascend P2, which is the first to use an LTE Cat 4 chip, will be offering theoretical 4G download speeds of up to 150Mbps.
The Chinese firm says that the Ascend P2 will have a 4.7-inch screen with 315ppi as well as super high-resolution camera (13-megapixels). This tidy smartphone will also feature Magic Touch, a handy feature that will allow touch operation even when wearing gloves.
The Huawei Ascend P2 offers 720p HD video, a long-life battery, NFC for wireless payments and a slim chassis of just 8.4mm.
The last quarter of 2012 saw Huawei ship over 10-million smartphones making it the world's third largest smartphone player. The question now is will a lesser known brand in the UK and an aggressive pricing strategy be enough to draw you away from Samsung or Apple products?
