Quoted by US Blog unwiredview.com, Huawei Device's CEO, Richard Yu, says the company is aiming to sell 10 million units of the new smartphone when it goes on sale in the coming weeks.

The blog claims Huawei has allocated 90 million Yuan (US$11 million) to the Ascend P6's marketing budget in its home country of China, with another US$30 million set aside for European advertising.

Huawei announced the Ascend P6 earlier this week, claiming the device is the "world's slimmest smartphone" at just 6.18mm. The company also says it comes with an "industry leading" 5-megapixel front-facing camera, which compares favourably against largely 2-megapixel alternatives.

The Huawei Ascend P6 will launch in China from June and should be available in Western Europe from July. It is expected to cost around €450 in Europe and CNY2,688 (around €327) in China, making it significantly cheaper than competing smartphones like the Samsung Galaxy S4 and the HTC One.

Huawei Australia says there is "nothing to announce regarding an Australian launch" for the Ascend P6 but told us to "stay tuned".

STYLISTIC Q702

First impression on unpacking the Q702 test unit was the solid feel and clean, minimalist styling.

For work use, Microsoft Word and Excel programs pre-installed on the device are adequate for preparing short documents.

LIFEBOOK UH574

The Fujitsu LifeBook UH574 allowed for great mobility without being obnoxiously heavy or clunky. Its twelve hours of battery life did not disappoint.

STYLISTIC Q702

The screen was particularly good. It is bright and visible from most angles, however heat is an issue, particularly around the Windows button on the front, and on the back where the battery housing is located.

STYLISTIC Q702

My first impression after unboxing the Q702 is that it is a nice looking unit. Styling is somewhat minimalist but very effective. The tablet part, once detached, has a nice weight, and no buttons or switches are located in awkward or intrusive positions.
