Vodafone UK isn't the only one getting the Huawei Ascent P1; WIND Mobile up in Canada has started selling the handset today for $49 on their tab payment plan ($399 otherwise). To kick off the launch, WIND is hosting a contest on Facebook where participants have a chance at winning the phone, free service, and a trip to Hollywood for the premiere of The Expendables 2. Here's a rundown of the specs.
4.3-inch 960 x 540 qHD display
4 GB local storage plus microSD slot
Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich
8 megapixel camera with 1.3 megapixel front-facing camera
1.5 Ghz dual-core processor
We're still not sure if this thing will ever find its way to the U.S., but with support on WIND, it would at least be compatible with T-Mobile's AWS bands.
