Huawei launched five Android phones in Pakistan in a launch event held at Royal Palm, Lahore. It was a launch event mainly for distributors and retailers in Lahore, with a very small number of bloggers present at the event.
The five phones launched by Huawei are: Huawei Ascend Y 200, Hauwei Vision, Huawei Ascend G 300, Huawei Honor and the Huawei Ascend P1 (we reviewed it). We have given a brief info about their specs and prices in Pakistan below.
The event started with a small speech from Geng Simeng, CEO Huawei Pakistan, and then by Shoukat Hayat Piracha, Chairman Airlink Communication. Later, Badar Khushnood of Google Pakistan shared some interesting statistics about Android in Pakistan. From the total smartphone population, Android phones are taking around 60% of the market share in Pakistan. Firdous Ashiq Awan was the chief guest at the event.
Huawei phones were unveiled with musical performances and the event closed with live performance by Ali Azmat.
We will be uploading all the photos of the event on our Facebook page. Check them out later! Huawei Pakistan will be doing a similar launch event in Karachi tomorrow.

Huawei Ascend Y 200 having 256MB RAM makes it useless (http://www.gsmarena.com/huawei_ascend_y200-4838.php) … HTC Explorer is a good option at a slightly upper price having 512MB RAM
Huawei Vision (http://www.gsmarena.com/huawei_u8850_vision-4109.php) on the other hand is a better option with at least 512MB RAM, flash and a higher pixel density screen at an affordable price range
When they will be publicly available?
I have seen Huawei Honor and Ascend, display is neat but shop keepers discourage to buy this cell phone regarding many reasons.
Why are they discouraging? What reason could that be?
Good set if you cannot buy htc, samsung, motorolla and shopkeepers discouraging because parts not available in market and its chinese after all..
if it is chinese than what’s problem? it is only our concept that china makes bad thing reality is different……
