CEO Huawei, Yu Chengdong said that Huawei is not just trying to jump into the realm of mobile Windows Phone only. He said that Huawei is planning to adopt the Windows Phone operating system for all.
Chengdong also added that Huawei has a long-term plan with Windows Phone. Ascend W1 phone is the beginning of the plan.
The Huawei Ascend W1 itself is rumored to be on sale in China for about 1599 yuan or around $ 257 USD. As a precaution, Huawei will test market reaction and enthusiasm to produce 500 thousand units for the first batch.
