The Ascend G300 is aimed at the lower end of the mobile market and packs a single-core 1GHz ArmV7 MSM7227A processor, 512MB of RAM, 4-inch WVGA touch screen, 5MP camera, Android 2.3.6 Gingerbread (with an upgrade to Ice Cream Sandwich coming later this year), 2.5GB of internal storage and a microSD card slot.*
The Huawei onslaught begins. This is a very well specified Android smartphone if it were valued at twice the price. As it is, at £100 on PAYG it represents astonishing value. Expect this price to halve within 12 months. We'll no doubt be finding Huawei smartphones in packets of Corn Flakes eventually
Now, I am really interested in their top end flagship models. What price will these hit the streets at? I wouldn't expect them to be premium priced, not if Huawei are going to cut the legs away from under the established. They need to make a mark and do so with compelling propositions. This is a great start at the bottom end. Will they repeat it at the top end?
IIRC that song and dance re unlocked it referred to Contract phones only. I am told that the Nokia Lumia 710 that I picked up (£150 PAYT) unlocked is now selling locked on PAYT and unlocked on Contract.
