Huawei's iPhone-looking Android smartphone to be available in late 2009

Chinese telecommunications company Huawei has announced its first Android-powered smartphone at the GSMA Mobile World Congress in Barcelona to be commercially available in the third quarter of 2009.

Huawei joins HTC in the Android operating system camp with a real production phone, along with Motorola and Kogan who have announced plans to ship devices running Google's operating system.

Details of the phone are light, but Huawei partnered with an “established design consultancy to develop a robust and user-friendly interface, creating a powerful customer experience that is able to evolve with operators’ differentiation requirements”.

The device itself has an uncanny resemblance to the iPhone.

Director of Huawei's terminal marketing department, James Chen, said the company is delighted to showcase its “much-anticipated first Android-powered smartphone”.

“As a pioneer in mobile broadband devices, we look forward to expanding a compelling mobile communications experience for end-users whilst providing customised services to our operator partners via the Android smartphone,” Chen said.

I would recommend this device for families and small businesses who want one safe place to store all their important digital content and a way to easily share it with friends, family, business partners, or customers.

Brother QL-820NWB Professional Label Printer

It’s easy to set up, it’s compact and quiet when printing and to top if off, the print quality is excellent. This is hands down the best printer I’ve used for printing labels.

Brainstorming, innovation, problem solving, and negotiation have all become much more productive and valuable if people can easily collaborate in real time with minimal friction.

The print quality also does not disappoint, it’s clear, bold, doesn’t smudge and the text is perfectly sized.
