    First post has been edited to reflect Wikipedia's pronunciation.

    I read at the Official Huawei.com site that the correct english pronunciation is Ha-way.

    I can't find it now but this is from Wiki...

    too many people say Whah-way for it to be ha-way...whah-way would make more sense since there is a letter U right after H

    I really could care less what Wikipedia says....Wikipedia is managed by a human being.....everyone makes mistakes... it could definitely be Whah-Way

    don't want to post a new thread so I thought I would post this here.

    I read somewhere how to get angry birds working and I wanted to share it. :)

    all you need to do is press the power button (top right) to lock the screen when you first hear
    sound and nothing shows. when you unlock the screen you will be able to play.
    its a bit choppy but if set CPU is set to performance it does OK. :)

    I sure did! LOL Cause I read it at that Huawei.com site.

    In my research today I have seen and heard it pronounced more ways than you can shake a stick at. LMAO

    Maybe this is why they are going to be calling their new phones the IDEOS X5 and X6 (without the Huawei in front). :)

    LOL!! You're welcome Blaster! It's fun to see how everyone else pronounces it. Even the two voice recordings are each different.
