Huawei Ascend W1 pre-orders start in Russia


While we are all excited about the Nokia Lumia 620, other low-cost Windows Phones are also trying to place their stake in the low-cost war.

The 4 inch WVGA Windows Phone 8 Huawei Ascend W1 will be hitting the Russian market soon, with Russian retailer Svyaznoy starting pre-orders for the handset.

The device will be retailing for 8,990 rubles, which is only $299 – somewhat cheaper than the Nokia Lumia 620, which has been retailing for more than 250 Euro.

  • Dual-core 1.2 GHz processor.
  • Camera: 5 MP main, front 0.3 MP.
