There are two things that really get the blood flowing here at Coolsmartphone Towers. One of them is new toys, and the other is bargains. Now, combine the two and the extra large bottle of smelling salts gets put on standby!
This time it’s the new Huawei W2 that’s had £80 lopped off its retail price down at ibood.co.uk.
If you’re after a budget Windows phone then most people would recommend the Nokia 520 or 620, and they’d be right to do so, but Huawei have a good (if unpronounceable) name in the Windows Phone world, so if you like to stand out from the crowd this could well be the phone for you.
Here’s how things stack up in the spec department:
- Processor: Qualcomm MSM8230 Snapdragon dual-core 1.4 GHz Krait
- GPU: Adreno 305
- RAM: 512 MB
- Storage Memory: 8GB
- Screen Size: 4.3 inch IPS LCD
- Screen resolution: 480 x 800 pixels
- Data connection: EDGE, GPRS, HSDPA, HSUPA, UMTS
- WiFi: 802.11A, 802.11B, 802.11G, 802.11N
- 5 Megapixel camera
Granted, it won’t set the world on fire, but if we already know that Windows Phone 8 will run perfectly happily on a device powered by a marvelous mechanical mouse organ, so it’s not going to be a slouch by any means.
