Camera pics to follow!

I believe 1500 mAh. Paul - please correct me if I am wrong.

Correct, 1500mAh.

It'll be like the Blade all over again. Cheap phone with decent specs.

Looking forward to the Perfect Wednesday ROMs :lol:

Not getting one Simon? FLB ROMs live again? :D

Since it's an ARMv7 phone I'd be highly surprised if both of them didn't work.

Does this have FM radio? Not vital but it'd be nice to have.

Yep, it's a decent CPU/GPU. MSM7227A, Cortex A5 ARM7 with NEON. CAF already supports the platform so it shouldn't be that difficult to bring ICS to it.

Does that mean it can do native Flash?

Whoops - a bit slow, serves me right for leaving page open. Can you confirm Paul re: Flash and iplayer?

what colour is it, the image on the box is the black version, but I thought it was the white version that was available through Vodafone?

I popped in to the local Voda store in Leeds at lunchtime to take a look... Was only a dummy phone on display but I like the size (compared to my current Blade). Very very tempted by this - I was so close to getting a Nexus S a couple of months ago, but the lack of MicroSD put me off (I have a 32GB card in my Blade).

This is pretty much the same spec as Nexus S (screen size, resolution, CPU speed, camera) but with Micro SD and GorillaGlass.

Think I'll wait until someone gets ICS on it though - going back to GB would feel like a massive step backwords.

Has anyone started asking Huawei and Vodafone for kernel source yet?

Don't think so. Doesn't say anywhere in the specs

My thoughts exactly. Must be because we are both in Leeds :)

I must admit I've got the 'fear' because Huawei have said that ICS will be available in the summer, to me sounds like it'll never happen because they'll have squeezed out a new phone in the meantime and will not be interested in supporting an 'old' phone.

You could be right, but tbh I'm not too bothered about an official ICS build - I'd rather have CM9 ;-)

There's a video sample uploaded onto Youtube.

Looks fairly decent and better quality than the OMC.

How good is the camera? I have the ZTE Blade, and the camera is my main disappointment - the pictures are just consistently terrible. Is this one good enough for pictures on the web or even some real snapshots?
