Huawei Ascend P1 unboxing video

Huawei Ascend P1 Until fairly recently the Huawei name was relatively unknown yet they have quickly managed to establish themselves as the smartphone manufacturer that makes some of the best value and entry-level models on the market. You’d never call them a luxury brand.

Perhaps with the launch of the Ascend P1 Huawei are looking to change things a little though as this latest launch from them combines some high-end specs with an attractive, slim design.

It features a 1.5GHz dual core processor and a stunning 4.3 Super AMOLED screen. With an 8 mega-pixel camera and high quality 5.1 Dolby sound also included. This high specification has been enclosed within an elegant slim design, which has been created for ease of use, as much as looks. It has a comfortable width of 64.8mm, making it easy to be held within in your hand.

The latest version of Android, 4.0 (Ice Cream Sandwich) has been included. This means that you have the most up-to-date features of the Android platform, and benefit from a smooth and interactive user experience. Huawei has added a stunning 3D user interface to the Ascend P1 making it easier to navigate between applications. It also shows off the power of the 1.5GHz dual-core processor.

Check out the unboxing and demo video below to see more.

Apple and Google behind the scenes

Google_vs_Apple1According to industry sources, Google and Apple are supposedly conducting "secret talks" behind the scenes in order to come up with a patent settlement agreement. Reuters reported that Larry Page, CEO of Google, and Tim Cook, CEO of Apple have recently had a private phone conversation in which they discussed "a range of intellectual property matters, including the on-going mobile patent disputes between the companies." Additionally, according to Reuter’s unnamed source, the two CEOs will likely talk again soon to continue negotiations for some kind of cease fire. Here’s a quote from the Reuters article with some final details,

Quote:

The two companies are keeping the lines of communication open at a high level against the backdrop of Apple’s decisive legal victory in a patent infringement case against Samsung, which uses Google’s Android software.
A jury awarded Apple $1.05 billion in damages last Friday and set the stage for a possible ban on sales of some Samsung products in a case that has been widely viewed as a "proxy war" between Apple and Google.
One possible scenario under consideration could be a truce involving disputes over basic features and functions in Google’s Android mobile software, one source said. But it’s unclear whether Page and Cook are discussing a broad settlement of the various disputes between the two companies – most of which involve the burgeoning mobile computing area – or are focused on a more limited set of issues.

Hopefully a more businessly gentleman’s agreement can be reached.
