The Consumer Electronics Show, (CES), is always a major event when it is held in Las Vegas each January and this will be no less true in 2013 than it has been in years gone by.
Amongst the wealth of new smartphone technology that will be on display will be the Huawei Ascend W1, with rumours reported on by WPDang suggesting that the Chinese manufacturer has recently secured Microsoft’s permission to make this Windows Phone 8 handset official.
In keeping with Huawei’s bargain-oriented principles, the Ascend W1 should be the most affordable Windows Phone 8 device on the market when it hits early next year.
Microsoft’s premium platform is currently only destined for class topping devices like the Nokia Lumia 920 and the Samsung Ativ S, but putting a more affordable twist on things will definitely be desirable.
At the moment, the specs of the Ascend W1 remain a mystery, although it is easy to assume that it will sport a dual core processor and a large, high res display, in order to keep up with the new features supported by Windows Phone 8, since its first appearance in the UK this month.
