Huawei to produce its own Android UI to take on the likes of HTC Sense, will intro an LTE device in the US in June


Huawei to produce its own Android UI to take on the likes of HTC Sense, will intro an LTE device in the US in June
Huawei's VP of Product Marketing for the US James Jiang said in an interview at CTIA that the company will be providing its own Android UI version. The move is meant to underscore the ease of use that Huawei's devices bring to the table.
The interface could feature integrated contacts menu that links to social networks, and one-touch access to the most commonly used functions - both of those not exactly sight unseen, considering the likes of HTC Sense, TouchWiz and so on. There is no timeline for the new Huawei UI, so the competition can now breathe easier.

He also mentioned a Huawei CDMA/LTE device will be announced for a US carrier next month, but spared us the details. Huawei is also pitching its flagships like the quad-core Ascend D and the Ascend P1 S to US carriers, hoping they'll bite, and at the same time working on a global brand-awareness marketing campaign for its new devices.
