Live: Huawei Press Event [CES 2013]


Who is ready for the 6.1″ Huawei beast? The Huawei press event for CES starts at 1:00PM Pacific, and has everyone abuzz, though I don’t know how positive that noise may be. Is the 6.1″ Ascend Mate too big? Does it cross the line of phone-tablet hybrid territory? We’ll find out in a few moments.

You’ll find my solo live blog below, as Tim waits in line for this afternoon’s big Samsung event. I’ll do my best to keep up as I giggle at the insanity.

    Think of it this way. If your holding it up to your ear no one would be able to see who you are anyway

    I used to be prejudice towards Hawaii (:D) but with every release, the phones are looking better and better….

      Too bad they are linked to the People’s Army of China, and there are a lot of rumors of their devices having malicious software that steals your personal information. Also Hawei and ZTE are linked to China’s mandated cyber warfare division of the People’s army too. There may be a ban on both companies devices in the U.S. soon, also Australia and Europe too. A lot also has to with the companies stealing technology and software from other companies for their phones from a lot of different manufacturers.

    Wow and I thought my Note 2 was pushing it. And I have big hands. I don’t know about this one. But I suppose that’s the same thing people said about the Note 2 before they held/used one…

    I dont think this is too big. I wish my nexus 7 was a phone, I would hook a bluetooth up to it and call it a day

  • yarrellray

    Ok Hauwei show us how soft you are. My Galaxy Note 2 is waiting.

    Nice stock photo in that widget in the first pic 🙂

    Is the speaker port on the back small?

    • ToddAwesome

      Is that the speaker port? Good lord. Long live the block rockin’ beats from the OG Droid!

        Seriously, that thing looks about as long as the camera lens is wide. And really thin. It’s like an LG. This after the two big speakers on that Pantech.

    Wow it’s so big in the hand! That’s what she said I guess….

    • nightscout13

      6.1″ is still manageable with 1 hand though. I think anything about 6.5″ will require both hands….

  • Go wait with tim at the sammy event

    • I should think a lot of the Samsung event won’t be about Android, so for this site, it’s not worth it. Not saying anything not Android isn’t interesting (far from it), but in the interests of this site, Kellen needs to be the Huawei event.
