Huawei Honour now available in the UK

We got sight of this back in February, but only now has it launched in the UK.

It's not available on contract either, you'll have to buy one SIM-free in this country. But more on that later, let's talk about the phone first.

The Honour, previously known by its Americanised spelling of Honor, packs a 1.4GHz processor, four-inch 480x854-pixel HD display, an eight-megapixel camera and a 1900mAh battery, which promises some serious life between charges. The previews hinted at a summer upgrade to Ice Cream Sandwich. Well, it's summer now and the phone is launching with Android 2.3 Gingerbread. Hopefully that upgrade will follow.

We haven't got a review done and dusted yet, so you'll have to take a chance on the handset. But it does look like a solid mid-range offering, despite that older version of Android.

Price-wise, that depends on where you shop. The likes of Clove, Expansys and Play are all selling it, with the cost for all hovering around the recommended price of £250. Saying that, you can get it as cheap as £210 if you head to Expansys.
