Huawei Ideos X5 U8800 Forum Added
It seems that mid range devices are here to stay. One manufacturer that has been steadily and silently growing in the mobile device industry is Huawei. They normally develop mid to low range devices and cater to people who don’t want to shell out $500 for a Samsung or a HTC device. As there have been numerous requests for this one, we decided to give the owners of the Huawei X5 U8800 a place to play. All discussions about rom, kernel, and app development for this device can be found in this area from now on. The device packs quite a punch in terms of hardware specs and also runs on Froyo (Android 2.2). So, if you were looking for a mid range device to quench your thirst for Android goodness, look no further.
