The race for the fastest 4G device is on and the opening salvo at the 2013 Mobile World Congress was fired by Huawei with its Ascend P2 device.

The 4G and 3G networks are already fighting over who has the fastest network – every one knows its EE despite Three deludedly thinking a 3G network could possibly beat a 4G network, bless – and now its the turn of the handset manufacturers to follow suit. The new Huawei Ascend P2 features a 1.5 GHz quad-core processor and LTE Cat 4, which offers download speeds of up to 150 Mbps.

And naturally this qualifies Orange France where it will be deployed in June 2013 to claim that the device is the world’s fastest 4G LTE smartphone.

“The technological capabilities of the HUAWEI Ascend P2 will enable our customers to have the fastest access to all their content, with speeds up to 150 Mbps on our brand new 4G network,” said Florence Paour, device marketing director, Orange France.

The Ascend P2 runs on the Android Jelly Bean (4.1) operating system, with Huawei’s own Emotion UI 1.5, and is powered by a 2420 mAh battery and 1.5 GHz quad-core processor. It will be available globally around the second quarter of 2013.
