Huawei Ascend Mate pre-orders start at $575 in China
Huawei announced three phones at the CES in Las Vegas in January - the Ascend D2 1080p smartphone, the Ascend Mate 6.1" phablet and the Ascend W1 Windows Phone midranger. Usually the Huawei phones launch in their homeland - China - first and so this is the case here.
The 6.1-inch Ascend Mate droid will launch in about a month and at least one retailer is already taking pre-orders for it. The Chinese retailer Liaow, which offers international shipping charges exactly $575 for the smartphone.
Shipping would be another $23-$38, depending on the country you live in and you get to choose between DHL and EMS. Keep in mind though, that you'll also have to pay various import fees and, depending on the laws in your country, VAT.
