China's Huawei Unveils World's Fastest Smartphone
Chinas Huawei is making a bid to claim its share of attention as the worlds third-largest smartphone company with a new phone its calling the fastest smartphone in the world.
Its new Ascend P2 with a 4.7-inch screen will be available during the second quarter for about $525 without a contract, said Richard Yu, head of Huaweis consumer business group. Its claim to being the worlds fastest smartphone is based on its ability to support faster downloads than other phones or provided by todays wireless networks.
The Ascend P2 can be programmed to display more than 100 different themes which is important because ladies like flowers, colorful things, said Yu.
He added that Huawei is learning from Apple how to make Googles Android software easier to use a statement that seems unwise given the litigation initiated by Apple against Samsung and other smartphone makers for allegedly infringing Apple design and technology patents.
During the fourth quarter of 2012 Huawei Technologies moved up to become the worlds third largest seller of smartphones, after Samsung and Apple, according to research firm IDC. That status is based mostly on its success in China which has about 50% more mobile phone users than the US.
So far Huawei sells few phones in the US, in part because of last Octobers report by a congressional panel urging carrier to avoid selling Huawei phones because they may contain code that could give Chinas spy agencies backdoor access to their communications. Both Huawei and Beijing objected strenuously, saying the reports conclusions are based on self-serving and paranoid conjecture rather than any basis in reality.
So far only a few second-tier US mobile services have begun selling Huawei phones. In Europe and elsewhere, however, Huawei phones and routers are winning rapid acceptance.
It has not been an easy journey for us, said Huawei global brand director Amy Lou Sunday in Barcelona ahead of Mondays opening of Mobile World Congress, the worlds largest trade show for the mobile phone industry. Huawei is a great consumer brand in the making, she said.
Huawei is Chinas largest telecom equipment maker and the second largest in the world to only Cisco.

Here ya go;
STOCKHOLM Swedish furniture giant Ikea was drawn into Europe's widening food labeling scandal Monday as authorities said they had detected horse meat in frozen meatballs labeled as beef and pork and sold in 13 countries.
The Czech State Veterinary Administration said that horse meat was found in one-kilogram packs of frozen meatballs made in Sweden and shipped to the Czech Republic for sale in Ikea stores there. A total of 1,675 pounds of the meatballs were stopped from reaching the shelves.
Ikea spokeswoman Ylva Magnusson said meatballs from the same batch had gone out to Slovakia, Hungary, France, Britain, Portugal, the Netherlands, Belgium, Spain, Italy, Greece, Cyprus and Ireland. Magnusson said meatballs from that batch were taken off the shelves in Ikea stores in all those countries. Other shipments of meatballs were not affected, she added.
However, the company's Swedish branch announced on its Facebook page that it won't sell or serve any meatballs at its stores in Sweden out of concern for "potential worries among our customers."
Magnusson said Ikea saw no reason to extend that guidance globally. She said Ikea was conducting its own tests of the affected batch. She also said that two weeks ago Ikea tested a range of frozen food products, including meatballs, and found no traces of horse meat.
Ikea's stores feature restaurants and also sell typical Swedish food, including the so-called Kottbullar meatballs.
European Union officials were meeting Monday to discuss tougher food labeling rules after the discovery of horse meat in a range of frozen supermarket meals such as burgers and lasagna that were supposed to contain beef or pork.
