So, who's getting the Ascend W1, and why? As for me, I might be looking into it. Depends on the storage space of the phone and whether or not it has removable battery, microSD, et al.
EDIT: fixed my copy paste blunder

I might get it if it comes out with MetroPCS (even though they will merge w/ T-Mobile in the latter part of this year). I have a $30 4G LTE plan, but I'm stuck with a lackluster Droid. Of course, it will depend on the price (hoping for $199 to even a low $149 to get people on it) and the colors available (Want cyan or white). Btw, is there any credible news about when this phone will come out?

I would get one. Depends on which one arrives sooner at Mexico's Telcel. It's either the W1 or the 8S. I don't really need all the bells and whistles of flagship devices like the L920 or 8X. Plus, they can be quite expensive, even on contract here in Mexico. The W1 or 8S I might get for free.

Just bought one in China.. On "sale" for RMB 1299.. My only gripe is that I'm already out of space!!! I put in a 64GB flash card, but I still have 1.5GB of "other" on the phone, 195mb of apps, and basically have no space... I guess apps can't be pushed out to flash like on an android?
Otherwise, its a great cheap phone!

Yeah I got this phone last week other storage issue ruins this good phone limits your apps but the sd storage great for pic and music. Its very similar to my hd7 i had. Just got it for 109.99 gb. Only in stop gap until the new Nokias come out as ill have a two year contract the 820 or 920 don't take my fancy.

I just got my Huawei yesterday. Really glad with my purchase because it is exactly bang for buck. I don't like spending too much on phones so this was ideal to me compared to the 620 which is next in line. The 510 looked good too, but it didn't have a secondary camera so I ruled it out. Otherwise, from this one day of having my W1, I'm pretty happy! Just a matter of getting used to the OS ^^,
Oh I should say I got mine in Nairobi for about 190$, but I wish my carrier gave me more bonus items. My other phone (Huawei Ideos some 2 years ago) came with a buttload of free credit and a huge data bundle!

Bought one today in Canada on the WIND network. Had an HTC device on Android for the last year but HTC being HTC they discontinued the device like a month after I bought it so no updates.
Only literally a few hours usage on the Ascend W1 so I'll post a more detailed review in a few days when I've got a feel for it. First impressions are pretty nice. It's lightweight and the OS feels very responsive.
