Huawei W1

Huawei and ZTE are rather hot in the news when it comes to Windows Phone. The two Chinese OEM partners are potentially looking to release new hardware, running Microsoft's Windows Phone OS and rumours pinned the former manufacturer to unveil its Ascend W3 at CES this week.

Now, WPDang reports that this may not be the case and both Huawei and ZTE may well be eyeing up Mobile World Congress for some Windows Phone action.

Rum: 6

It's interesting to see reports that both companies skip the Consumer Electronics Show, but we're not expecting major Windows Phone announcements over the next few days. Today, we were at the Huawei conference, which didn't sport any announcement covering the Ascend W3 (or anything Windows Phone related), but it's early days and we're always open to surprises.

Could the two companies be skipping CES for MWC? It's plausible. We'll keep our eyes open for further details on both manufacturers and what plans are for MWC, updating you all accordingly.
