I wasn't able to do much one-handed, but I figure I could probably make and answer phone calls without using my other hand.
The Huawei rep I spoke to officially denied any details on the price or release date. I was given some info on the specs. Basically the spec sheet confirms the 1280x720 screen resolution, 1.5GHz quad-core CPU, Wifi/Bluetooth/CDMA, 8MP rear and 1MP front facing cameras, and the generally top of the market specs of the phablet.
The projected battery life is 9 days in standby, thanks to the 4Ah battery. It's going to be available in any color you want so long as it is black or white.
This phablet could easily give the Samsung Galaxy Note a run for its money. And when it comes to the US, I definitely plan to check it out in a store.
