Communicasia, Singapore, June 16, 2009 - (ACN Newswire) - Huawei Technologies Co., Ltd. ("Huawei"), a leader in providing next-generation telecommunications network solutions for operators around the world, today showcased two new smartphones at CommunicAsia 2009 in Singapore the Android-powered "U8230" and the "C8000" which utilizes the Windows Mobile operating system. Equipped with the latest mobile handset technologies, the new smartphones were being exhibited in advance of their commercial release in the second half of 2009.

The Android-powered U8230 smartphone allows users to switch between full and half QWERTY keyboards and to navigate programs easily via a 3.5-inch LCD touch screen.
