Huawei Ascend W1 launching March 7th in UK on O2: free from £13.50 per month or £120 on PAYG

We’re starting to think Microsoft is onto something with Windows Phone 8, an OS that’s capable of delivering a solid user experience on mediocre handset specs. UK network provider O2 seems to feel the same, and in addition to pushing Nokia’s Lumia 620 at an attractively low price, has bagged exclusivity for Huawei’s Ascend W1. We originally heard the device would be available sometime in Q1, but now we have a specific date: March 7th. Well, that’s when you can pick up the “Electric Blue” model, anyway, with an “Electric Pink” option arriving March 18th. It’ll cost £120 (around $182 dollars) if you opt for PAYG (SIM-locked, no doubt), or free on contracts starting at £13.50 per month. Sold on those wallet-friendly numbers? Then head past the break and pick out your color.
