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.
