China-based Huawei Technologies has announced plans for a new range of Google Android handsets.

Huawei will release a "series" of Google Android phones in Europe, the Asia Pacific and Latin America, the spokeswoman said, declining to give details. One Android phone from the company, the Pulse, is already sold by T-Mobile in the UK.

Huawei has used low prices gained from its base in China to quickly build its main business in networking equipment, and the vendor has similarly pitched the Pulse as an Android phone for lower-end customers. Huawei called the handset the world's first Android smartphone available on a pay-as-you-go scheme.

Chinese companies Haier and Beyond Radio Technology previously announced Android phones headed for Europe as well.
