Huawei's hot new line of smartphones just got a little hotter. The Chinese-based manufacturer recently signed an agreement with LocatioNet Systems. LocatioNet makes the “amAze” GPS navigation service, which will soon come pre-installed standard on all Huawei smartphones. If you end up grabbing one of Huawei's new phones (like the Android-laden 8230) amAze will come loaded for your use.

LocatioNet claims that their “unique ad-funded” model makes their amAze navigation system the most economical out there. I have to say, turn-by-turn voice navigation on your smartphone for the price of some ads doesn't seem like too terrible a deal. Of course, 'ad-funded' is a very vague term, and it could always turn out to be more infuriating than I'm anticipating.
Nabbing amAze for their new mobile line is a significant coup for Huawei. It gives their new smartphones something that distinguishes them from competitors. It's very rare to find a smartphone that has the full turn-by-turn voice functionality of a Garmin or Magellan right out of the box. This could very well be the partnership that sets Huawei's products apart from the crowd.
