Android Phone Prices Declining Quicker Than Expected
We don’t know about you, but that’s the kind of headlines we like to see. Thanks to a proliferation of handset makers and good ol’ fashioned competition, the prices of Android handsets is dropping faster than analysts and industry insiders expected.
Take for instance the forthcoming T-Mobile Pulse Mini from Huawei. Announced at last week’s Mobile World Congress, the U8110 features a 2.8-inch resistive screen with stylus, a 3.2 megapixel camera, and Android 2.1 under the hood. When it arrives later this quarter for T-Mobile UK, it’s expected to sell for about £100 (US$155) unlocked. That’s over 54% less than the price tag that came on the original Pulse only a few months ago. Granted the screen size does factor in for most heavy users, the general public will likely fall in love with the price.

Are you a specs or price person? Do you gravitate towards a phone based off of one or the other?
