    Huawei didn't disappoint us regarding the number of new devices on display, as with every show. This year at the IFA they had some new phones and tablets on display, joining the already existent devices from MWC in February. We have two tablets (MediaPad 10FHD, MediaPad 7 Lite), two phones (Ascend G600, Ascend G330), and an update for the Ascend P1 with the new, proprietary Emotion UI on top of Google's mobile platform. The devices might not be powerhouses but the moderate specifications will probably result in very accessible price points. While not all will make it to the U.S., we're ...

Jump down to the video and click play to see what's in the box, what's looking good on the jet-black phone casing, and what the first power-on looks like. Then stay tuned over the coming days for the full review, coming just as soon as we can ...

    We've reached that point, folks. The battle for the title of "world's slimmest smartphone" is down to fights over hundredths of a millimeter- the internationally-recognized sign of a fight no one cares about anymore. In the past six months, phone makers Motorola, Huawei, and Oppo have all made the "thinnest" claim at some point. Today, Huawei's Ascend P1 S is still lording the lofty title of most-svelte over its rivals, with a thickness measurement of 6.68mm. That's just a little ways from the DROID RAZR's 7.1mm, but a far cry from the 13.9mm original RAZR that kicked off this whole ...
