    The Huawei Ascend P2 may be the company's hot smartphone for today, but don't forget about the Ascend D2, the 1080p Android we heard announced back at the CES. While we got to go hands-on with the handset at the time, we weren't able to really show you just what the phone's thirteen-megapixel camera was really capable of. Well, now that we're in Barcelona for the Mobile World Congress, we once again croseed paths with the D2, and this time we had the opportunity to put the phone's camera through its paces. We didn't fiddle with any settings here: these were taken in full-auto mode, though ...

    This year's Consumer Electronics Show from Las Vegas has come and gone. As usual, we've been both on-site bringing you coverage from events as well as the show floor, and here on Pocketnow, keeping you up to date with what's going on in the mobile world. For some the show has been excellent; for others it has been a letdown. We can't compare CES to a specialized mobile event like MWC (maybe with IFA); still, our experience from past years has taught us to expect certain things to happen at CES. They might or might not have happened in a straightforward way but there was a lot of innovation ...

    Veni, vidi, vici! We were looking forward to CES 2013, pretty much like we're always looking forward to trade shows where there's a possibility of seeing new and exciting things from and related to the mobile world. Good or bad as it was, this year's Vegas show is just one of many to come and, probably the biggest problem related to CES is the fact that it is followed shortly by MWC, a show related to mobile and only mobile. We're seeing companies slowly moving away from shows to announce their gadgets, following Apple's lead, but even those companies who are show-centric have probably ...

    "The Snowball, the 6-Inch Mate, & the In-N-Out Experience." That's the summary that led us out of our most recent podcast, and it narrowly missed becoming the title of this here episode, number 26 in our weekly series. This is a very special episode, coming to you straight from the luxurious Pocketnow suites overlooking the blink-tastic Las Vegas strip. For the past few days, we've been covering the happenings from CES 2013, bringing you video after video of devices from manufacturers of all stripes. It hasn't been the most hardware-heavy show in memory, but that doesn't mean we don't ...

    We got a chance to take a quick look at Huawei's Ascend D2 1080p Android around the time of the company's CES press event last night. If you were hoping to get an even closer, more thorough look at the D2, we swung by Huawei's booth and picked one up again in order to offer you a few new thoughts on the smartphone. Like on the Ascend Mate, Huawei's custom software lets you hide the on-screen Android soft buttons with a tap, and on a smaller screen like this, that feature's going to be all the more valuable. Unfortunately, despite the phone's quad-core SoC, it just really doesn't seem to be ...

    The more pocket-friendly cousin of Huawei's 6.1-inch Ascend Mate, the Ascend D2 is the company's first smartphone with a 1080p display. At Huawei's CES event this afternoon, we got a little hands-on time with the phone. The D2's five-inch screen gives its display a very respectable 443ppi density. It runs a quad-core SoC, and while it doesn't have the Ascend Mate's huge 4050mAh battery, its 3000mAh component is still pretty hefty by smartphone standards. As we told you during Huawei's press event, the D2 is dust and water-resistant, and based on its ability to survive an on-stage fall, ...

    Last night, the discovery of some Ascend D2 promotional signage made Huawei's announcement today feel almost like a lock, and sure enough, the company has used its time at the CES to announce the Ascend D2 and giant-sized Ascend Mate. First up, the Ascend D2: the phone gets a five-inch 1080p display, quad-core SoC, 3000mAh battery, and a 13-megapixel camera. The handset is also dust and water resistant, demonstrated by pouring an entire pitcher over the phone. Huawei's grand idea for the D2 is that smartphones should be "all-in-one" devices, and a small battery or low-resolution camera ...

    Just like the Sony Xperia Z we just took a look at, Huawei's new Android devices have seen so many recent leaks that their appearance at CES started to feel like an inevitability. The company has a press conference scheduled for tomorrow to make everything official, but in the meantime, another pic from Vegas makes it abundantly clear what we can expect from the expo, this time showing off the Ascend D2. Along with the D2, a high-end Android, chances are good that Huawei will also be unveiling its W1 Windows Phone 8 smartphone, as well as the so-oversized-it's-hard-to-belive 6.1-inch ...

    There is little to no doubt regarding Huawei's CES line-up; thanks to both rumors and leaks we know to expect Windows Phones as well as Android powered devices next week in Las Vegas. Since we're getting close to the event press renders popping up are not at all unusual. First we have the Ascend D2, pictured above, which we've already seen captured on camera last week. Expect to see an HD resolution screen, a 1.5GHz quad-core CPU, as well as 13-megapixel camera on this device. With a four-inch screen and a 1.2GHz dual-core processor, the Huawei Ascend W1 will be powered by Windows Phone ...

    Those who are interested in Huawei phones or just follow the trend in mobile technology already know that we should expect to see at least one, if not two, Windows Phones from the Chinese phone-maker at CES 2013. The Android-powered Ascend D2 has also been rumored to make an appearance, later confirmed by the company. The pictures above reportedly depict the five-inch Ascend D2 but aside from these photos not much else is unveiled, except a confirmation of previous rumors talking about HD resolution, 1.5GHz CPU quad-core CPU and a 13-megapixel camera. The design appears to be iPhone ...
