Huawei are looking to capitalise in Russia with its Ascend W1 Windows Phone. The handset is expected to be available in February 2013 and will be aggressively priced to tackle Nokia's entry into the market. The company is taking the platform seriously and is looking to release new hardware in multiple markets.
As noted above, the Ascend will be priced accordingly. 11.990 rubles ($400), which puts it alongside the Lumia 620. Not as cheap as the pricing reported in China, but for $400, we'll take any Windows Phone 8 handset. Comparing both the Ascend W1 and Lumia 620 together, one can note how the Ascend W1 sports a larger battery (2000mAh), faster chip (dual-core 1.2GHz), larger display (4") and a front-facing shooter.
So which one are you?
