Huawei's capping off the good week it had at MWC by announcing that its 4G Wireless Network Card (E3276) and Mobile WiFi (E5776) will arrive in Europe and Asia Pacific by July 2012. Of course, only Germany, Poland, Norway, Sweden, Finland in Europe and Japan in Asia have fully working LTE networks. We're not so sure if the company's also committing to a launch window for its similarly enabled phones but it wouldn't be unreasonable to hope that we'll see those turn up around the same time. If you want more details, you should know where to go by now.

Huawei showcases its strong suite of LTE products at Mobile World Congress 2012

Barcelona, February 29, 2012: Huawei, a leading global information and communications technology (ICT) solutions provider, today announced its plan to introduce its full range of LTE mobile products, including its LTE wireless network card (E3276) and LTE mobile WiFi (E5776) into European markets and Asia Pacific by July 2012. The E3276 and E5776 support LTE Cat 4 and boast speeds that are up to 50% faster than LTE mobile broadband devices in the market, providing up to 150Mbps downstream speed in LTE FDD format, and 112Mbps downstream speed in LTE TDD format.

"As a pioneer in providing end-to-end integrated LTE solutions, Huawei is keen to promote LTE development globally, and providing a better Internet experience to consumers worldwide," said Shao Yang, CMO of Huawei Device. "In 2012, Huawei expands our LTE mobiles series to European markets and Asia Pacific in an effort to consolidate our leadership position in the LTE market."

At the Mobile World Congress 2012, Huawei is showcasing its outstanding suite of LTE products including its latest LTE smartphone, the Ascend D lte, which features a dual-core 1.5G processor and a 4.5 inch HD touchscreen, enabling users to take advantage of the unprecedented data transfer speed that LTE offers.

The Ascend D lte is accompanied by the Ascend P1 lte which was launched at CES 2012, the world's first LTE TDD multi-mode Mobile WiFi Huawei E589, LTE TDD wireless broadband router Huawei B593 as well as cradle AF23 and AF22.

The Huawei B593 supports LTD TDD and FDD and reaches a maximum download speed of 100 Mbps. Additionally, it can be connected to a maximum of 32 sets of WiFi facilities or desktop via its Ethernet port. Two-way VOIP recording is also available.

The AF23 and AF22 cradle provide wide-area Ethernet connection via their Ethernet port for the E3276 and E5776 respectively. When the AF23 is attached to the E3276, it converts the E3276 to a Mobile WiFi, providing WiFi offload and WiFi repeater functions. Similarly, the AF22 base station acts as a battery charger to the E5776's and enhances wireless cellular network signal through antenna connectors on its side.

Huawei's mobile broadband LTE devices offer speeds and quality comparable to that of fixed-line broadband. Operators will benefit from its flexibility at low costs and excellent customer user experience. The technology has been well received by operators and consumers in Europe, Middle East and North America.
