Huawei Ascend W1 was announced back at CES, a day after company's Android flagships got official. The Ascend W1 runs on Windows Phone 8 but relies on attractive price tag, rather than high-end specs to impress customers.

The Ascend W1 is now available in China, Huawei's home country, and is the cheapest WP8-powered smartphone there. It costs 1599 (about $260), which is good 400 cheaper than the Chinese version of the Lumia 620 (about $320).

If you are on to the Ascend W1 you can have it even cheaper - if you order it right now you'll automatically get a 100 discount while supplies last.

Huawei Ascend W1 will become available in other countries, including the UK, before the end of Q1 of this year.
