The market for smartphones is getting more and more momentum this year with Huawei and RIM launching a bunch of new BlackBerrys. Even more interesting is the fact that the two manufacturers have adopted their own unique approaches to benefit the consumer.
For the Canadian giant ‘RIM’ the end goal is to remain ahead of the competition and safeguard its lion’s share of the market, which is currently under threat by the iPhone. Whereas Huawei’s being the underdog is aiming to bring the company’s image to the forefront of the market as a producer of smarphones.
The lineup of RIM’s new five smartphones include two phones with full touchscreen functionality, another two with qwerty keyboards and super refined ultra-slim designs and finally a slider Torch smartphone.
On the other side of the globe, Huawei has announced an Android based smartphone to hit the market next month. The name given to the device is ‘Vision’. Some critics are openly calling it a clone of the Samsung Nexus S.
The phone will feature a flashy new 3D-esque user interface developed by Huawei. However the 3D display will not be as extensive as the EVO 3D but rather limited to navigational features. Vision will run on a 1GHz Qualcomm Snapdragon.
Another interesting addition is the changeable back covers for the style savvy buyers. This new smartphone can actually be Huawei’s big break to tap into the fiercely competitive marketplace.
