    Hey Avenue, do you think the Huawei Ascend 2 will come out within the next 5 days? Because I just can't wait for it!

    I don't know. I've heard things from the first week in July all the way to July 30th.

    Okay, and thanks. I'll get it on the 1st of August since I already paid my phone bill for the month of July.

    Why such a delay

    Why is it taking so long. They have had this phone since April? I seen it tested by several places. Why can't they just sell it already? REALLY what could cause a delay like this? I just don't see if it is built why it can not be for sale...

    It's common for devices to be built ahead of production. This one was probably built so they could feature it at CTIA 2011.

    There could have still been some things they needed to tweak, Cricket apps they wanted to put on it, etc etc. The Cricket team is probably thinking strategy... How can they get the most bang for their buck out of this device? All these promotions were probably to get rid of the entire current stock of original Ascends.

    Don't think of it from your standpoint if you want to understand what is going on. Think of it from the business aspect. Just a suggestion.
    Please check the forum and post there before PMing me. I have over 674 unread PMs due to the fact that they are issues which should have been addressed here.

    If you need to buy something from (Ebay), please use this LINK every time and support the forum!

    I can tell you exactly why it's not out. Several reasons actually.
    1. Much better phone than the ascend 1, but the same price point. Therefore cant release it until the #1 is gone or they will be stuck with them because everyone will buy the #2
    2. Port in trade in promo. They are using that to get rid of The #1 and the Sanyo Zio. Ascend 2 is again a better phone. so once these other models are gone....
    3. Because they are trying to do what makes the most business sense. Not concerned with a couple of people on a forum who can't wait for a couple more weeks and dont understand the first thing about running a business.

    It should be out this week.

    Alright, good. That's what I thought, according to the pictures, but earlier some sources stated it was running Android 2.2. It must be easy to get confused since they work with so many phones in a short period of time.

    I have run my own computer company here in Buffalo, NY since 1997 so I do know a thing or two about that... But as for tweaks and apps for the phone I can see that. As for the OTHER models you just sell them for less than the newer better ones that are always coming out. There are people out there that will still buy them to save money and get a phone that has some bang. Some people who cannot wait a few weeks? As I said it was first shown in April, so that is MONTHS... Thanks chrisngrod your answer makes sense.

    Huawei Mercury



    Not saying that the independent dealer in my area (near Austin, TX) told me that they will be on the shelf this weekend, but I'm not not saying that either. Not even a theoretical on the price yet though, but keep you posted.
