Huawei Ascend P1 global availability announced

Huawei logoHuawei announced their slender droid - the Huawei Ascend P1 in early January with a vague Q2 release date. They've finally committed to slightly more concrete launch time frame.

The Ascend P1 (in case you don’t remember our CES coverage) is an Ice Cream Sandwich droid with a dual-core 1.5GHz processor, 4.3" qHD AMOLED screen and an 8MP camera. The key selling point of the smartphone is the 7.7mm slim profile.

Anyway, the P1 will first launch in May through carriers and retailers in Australia, Taiwan and Hong Kong. It will hit the shelves in Latin America in June followed by European availability in the summer. The Ascend P1 will launch in more markets later on.

So far, so good, but we still don't have pricing info on the Ascend P1 and there isn't a drop of info on the press release about the Ascend P1 S, which is a full millimeter thinner than the regular P1.

By the way, the Ascend P1 launched in its home market - China - today and has already sold out after receiving over 100,000 preorders according to Huawei's founder and chairman, Ren Zhengfei.
