Huawei and T-Mobile have reached a deal for the carrier to launch Hauwei's Android-based phone beginning in the third quarter of 2009, according to DigiTimes. It is unclear whether Huawei will launch the phone in cooperation with T-Mobile USA or T-Mobile International.
The report also said that Huawei will produce smartphones based on the Symbian OS and will roll out those phones in the second half of the year.
Huawei is said to be developing Symbian handset models supporting HSDPA, EV-DO and TD-SCDMA technologies. The company, along with fellow Chinese telecom equipment vendor and handset maker ZTE, will also likely launch their own branded models in the future. ZTE, along with Huawei has indicated that it will look to break into the North American handset market.
