China-based Huawei Technologies will release multiple mobile phones using Google’s Android operating system in coming months, a company spokeswoman said Wednesday.
Huawei will release a “series” of Android handsets in Europe, the Asia Pacific and Latin America, the spokeswoman said in an e-mail, declining to give details. One Android phone from the company, the Huawei Pulse, is already sold by T-Mobile in the U.K.
Huawei has used low prices gained from its base in China to quickly build its main business in networking equipment, and the vendor has similarly pitched the Pulse as an Android phone for lower-end customers. Huawei called the handset the world’s first Android smartphone available on a pay-as-you-go scheme.
Chinese companies Haier and Beyond Radio Technology previously announced Android phones headed for Europe as well.
