Seems it'll retail for around €450 or around £365.
Expansys UK have also updated their page to reflect this aproximate price, too: http://www.expansys....cend-p1-228060/

I think this is far too expensive for a Huawei-branded phone, and especially one which is only effectively a mid-range phone by today's standards.
For example, I think the Huawei Ascend P1 is comparable (tech spec-wise) to last years flag-ship Samsung phone, the Galaxy S2.
According to play.com, the Galaxy S2 can now be purchased (sim-free, unlocked and brand new) for even cheaper than the Huawei Ascend P1!!

I think that Samsung has by far the better brand recognition and respect (not to mention a far bigger community around the device), so how come Huawei thinks it can sell it's "variation-on-a-Galaxy S2" phone for even more? Personally, if I'm going to blow £350 on a phone and was considering between these two, I think I'd pick the Samsung Galaxy S2 every time.
Am I missing something here?
