The real exciting news for me is the Windows 8 tablet, which would mark the era of real computer tablet where tablets and pcs/laptops would have merged in to one truly compact device, then the possibilities are endless. Just think about it, from then, one will be able to bring his work, then sometime later, his hardcore gaming practically everywhere he goes. Tell me just how exciting is that! As for the wp8 phone, I don't find it that exciting except for the price, although I also think that it may really come in handy as the phone would then be easily sincronized with the tablet. I also believe the Huawei tablet will have a low price also, which tops up my excitement.

I'm eager to see how this will play out.

A sub $200 WP phone could be a real game-changer.

windows 8 means hardware freedom for manufactrures (or at least so they claim!), so Huawei will find it hard to compete, unless they bring something like ascend for a good price, coz many like myself are waiting for apollo to see how wp will end up!

Good Luck.

Huawei seems to be very Visionary, trying to mark their presence in every segment of mobile/tablet markets.

This handset, if released at the right time without major bugs at the price mentioned, can cause a huge dent to Lumia series' sales
