Huawei and the United States government may have their differences, but here’s something we can all agree on: Walmart’s going to sell whatever it darn well pleases. Including, mind you, Huawei’s first Windows Phone 8 smartphone. The W1 — which has made inroads in multiple markets already — is heading to the Yankee soil, with shipments expected to begin “this month” at Walmart.com and at select Walmart stores. For those in need of a refresher, it’ll pack a 1.2GHz dual-core CPU, a 4-inch IPS touchpanel, 1.7 GB of user-available internal storage (expandable to 32GB via microSD card), a 5 megapixel rear camera (with a 0.3MP shooter on the front) and the latest iteration of Microsoft’s mobile OS. Strangely, Huawei nor Walmart are offering up pricing details, but it’ll be offered “competitively” on a prepaid, no-contract plan.
