This new Windows Phone from Huawei and Microsoft is designed for the African continent, not surprisingly, considering its name - Huawei 4Afrika. Basically, it represents a somewhat modified version of the Huawei Ascend W1 that we encountered back at the CES event.

Hardware wise, the Huawei 4Afrika features a 4.0-inch, 800 x 480 resolution LCD, dual-core, 1.2GHz processor, 512MB of RAM, 4GB internal memory with microSD card slot, 5MP camera with 720p video recording and a front facing VGA snapper.

As for the software department, this handset comes with custom apps designed by local African developers for Africa, which Microsoft hopes it will make people switch from cheap feature phones. And most likely they will, but only if there isn't a huge difference in pricing.

You can expect the Huawei 4Afrika to go on sale later this month in Angola, Egypt, Ivory Coast, Kenya, Morocco, Nigeria, and South Africa and will be available in blue, red, black and white colors. We should find out more regarding price tags and availability in other African markets, so stay tuned.
