Huawei has announced that it will launch a feature phone, named Expedition, in association with Discovery Communications.
This feature phone is water-resistant, dustproof and anti-shock, and also includes a GPS, torch, compass and G-sensor, making it compatible with travel and outdoor activities. Additionally, it is equipped with Facebook and Twitter social networking capabilities, allowing consumers to share their outdoor adventures and memories with friends and loved ones.
The phone will be commercially available in the fourth quarter of 2011 and will retail through operators and distributors around the world.
“This is the first time that Huawei is creating a co-branded mobile phone with Discovery and we are very excited about providing outdoor enthusiasts with a device that can support their communications and active lifestyle needs. This Huawei-Discovery Expedition phone collaboration is the first of many to come and we look forward to working even more closely with Discovery in the near future to co-create more innovative products that we can share with consumers,” says Victor Xu, chief marketing officer, Huawei.
