We’re now just days away from the official launch of Windows Phone 8, and the smartphone superpowers are readying their wares for launch. Huawei’s got the latest of the bunch, the Ascend W1, but why should you care? Read more
So Android Jelly Bean looks awesome, with Google Now and the new and improved Voice Search putting some real distance between it and iOS. The Nexus 7 arrives on Thursday, but when will other manufacturers be updating their handsets to Jelly Bean?
Well we’ve been in touch; read the answers after the break.
The devil is a very busy man lately. He’s been on a tour of China, visiting upstart mobile phone manufacturers with a deal. You give me your soul, and I’ll show you how to make and sell an Android phone for an absurdly low price and still make a profit.

The Huawei Ascend G300 Android phone is going on sale later this week with Vodafone, the network announced today. With a 4-inch screen, 1GHz processor, 5MP camera and Android 2.3, it doesn’t look like much at first glance, but here’s the thing: it’s only going to cost £100.

Say hello to the Huawei Vision, a brand new Android phone that put all of its budget-conscious rivals to shame. We got hands on with the low end device at the Chinese telco giant’s London launch last night: read on for our initial impressions and find out why we’re so excited.
UPDATE: Huawei says it is looking at Ice Cream Sandwich, but there are no plans for an upgrade right now. We doubt that’ll stop the hackers, mind.
