Thanks for joining us, hope you enjoyed it. As a reminder, you can catch a full recap of what was announced with the links above.
Huawei typically sells phones in the prepaid market, with some low-end phones poking into Tier 1 carriers. This would be a HUGE win for them. It's hard to overstate that.
However, price is everything. I could really see this phone being outpriced (or underpriced) by competitors if the carrier partners don't subsidize. Features cost money.

I always like watching waveforms on my DVR.
Showing off the "Snowflake" UI.
A next-generation programming guide where instead of seeing content by time slot, you can see channels with live thumbnails.
I like to say that every UI is a snowflake. But that's another story.
The Snowflake UI lets users personalize their profiles. Log in to your TV and get personalized recommendations.
Users can subscribe to channels by favoriting them; also includes recommendations based on viewing behavior. Can also bring in social content -- YouTube channels, stories shared on Facebook or Twitter.
Now the cloud DVR service is on display.
This will let people watch content in bed and not "down in the living room, where it's cold," De Beers says.
