To be fair, Huawei is an 18 billion pound company that is only smaller than Ericsson for mobile electronics worldwide. Pretty much everyone who uses a mobile dongle in this country already owns a Huawei product. Even your own review of one of their products (3 Mobile MiFi) gave it a 9/10.To claim it is some sort of rank unknown that should aim at the bargain basement market seems a bit parochial. If the product is good, it should be able to charge a reasonable price.
Yes Huawei's everywhere - but it has a problem that most people going into phone shops to buy the latest HTC or iPhone largely have no idea who Huawei is (or how to pronounce its name, in some cases). We're well aware of its importance, but with devices like this and the Vision, the company is trying to become something different.
When we give the phone a full review, we won't do it down for "being a Huawei". I was just trying to express that it has a tough road ahead. These new devices represent a very good start, though.
There's also an unusual paucity of pre-installed apps, and none of them are Huawei's.
