YugaTech was able to see that advertising in a newspaper and was a bit bewildered what Globe have in store for their customers. The ad showed off two smartphone, one with a QWERTY keyboard and the other is an all touch smartphone. The names, the Globe CloudFone Ice (all touch) and the Globe CloudFone Temptation (QWERTY packing device).
YugaTech did a search for the CloudFone Ice and have discovered that the smartphone is actually the Huawei U8500 just rebranded. Most probably, if not at all, this is Globe's answer to Smart's Netphone. So, since the CloudFone ice is a Huawei made device, then what are it's specs? Below is a list of the device's specs I gathered from GSMArena, where YugaTech also got the specs of the device.
