Good news! But the way they`ve replied to all the questions about openGL and the rest make me think i`ll believe it when we get it. :)

I think its because people like us in our communities kept the pressure on both Huawei and Vodafone, and they could see a potentially significant loss in custom and lots of returned phones if it wasn't implemented.

Well done Everyone!

ETA is middle/late august according to Huawei Device on Twitter and Huawei Device UK on FB.

Huawei released B892 for china at first June at huawei.com.cn - after one month, at 2012-07-02, they released B926. Iif they released for Europe B892 at 17th july, I suppose that they will release ICS B9xx in middle/late august (approx 20th august).

We must be positive. Someone in another thread got a different, more expansive message than mine.
I'll see if I can quote it.



I just got a reply... Is this what we're looking for or did I word it wrong?


This make you happy?

Probably not, they're pushing the Ascend P1 atm (which is a sexy phone, but £365 :o )

But both pages have said that the hardware UI and openGL will be implemented. We should be happy about this.

I agree, they have been more specific this time round. We should be positive!

Hi Guys,

I can’t give any specific dates for a release of ICS on the phone as we simply don’t have them.

I can see that there are a few details missing from the last software test that were done over the last month and we don’t have details regarding when it will be available and if this will be done via a PC or OTA.

When the official ICS ROM is released it should give a much smoother experiencing for you however, I can’t see any details regarding 2D hardware acceleration being disabled or enabled and the only way to know would be to install it when it becomes available.


Then this from Vodafone tech team.

I can't see it arriving in the near future.

Amazing how my posts get attention from people XD

Either way, Huawei have said Mid/Late August, like they said they would at Q3. Maybe Huawei might put a unbranded ROM on the web then, seeing as vodafone's exclusivity period is over, before Vodafone do it OTA. Either way, Huawei are the main ROM writers. The Tech Team are just the testers, they rely on Huawei to code most things/everything into the ROMs, so I have high hopes that it will be present, and personally, I trust Huawei over Vodafone. Huawei got that B885 speaker fix out very quickly even though we may have got leaked ROMs beforehand, and even though they state in their terms of use that they don't have to provide software support/updates. They have pushed numerous updates since the phones release, and these leaked ROMs show that they are pushing even further forward in improving the experience.

I have faith in them.

I don't think there's any other kind of "accelerated UI", is there?
