Mobile handsets with Android v2.3 (and higher) Gingerbread operating system and handsets powered by the Android v3.0 (and higher) Honeycomb operating system are scoring home runs in the Mobile phone market. And Android v4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich operating system is the latest talk of the town and Huawei is also getting ready to embrace this new Android version in its handsets. Huawei has alredy been providing people with feature-filled, low cost smartphones.
Huawei Honor is soon going to be compatible with an Android upgrade. Honor is presently powered by the v2.3.5 Android Gingerbread operating system.
