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.

Here’s a quick hands-on video courtesy of the guys at Mobile Burn.

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