> In reply to [deleted post]nope, i'm a waiter.. i just happened to notice that a lot of modems are Huawei's and i did some google about them and found out they are actually multibillion company.. just that they are not so much into mobile phones, that's why people doubt them (along with the stigma that they are Chinese company making cheap copies)..

i'm just giving due credits..

huawei is actually a big company.. i know them because they are the USB modem provider for the telcos here.. the only thing i don't like about the company is the name itself.. it sounds too "China" and people simply don't know that it is actually one of the big players in tech industry..

so sorry for being too racist.. that's just what i feel..

but, hey, it's still a great company.. just look at this article and you'll see for yourself..

The nice look of ICS is gone, and Samsung applied the same TouchWiz UI from GB, but with ICS icons. But at least with this leak the CyanogenoMod will get the libs neeeded to continue their work on the AOSP rom.
