Huawei to Offer Entry-Level Froyo Device

Engadget appears to have gotten a tip about a new device from Huawei running Android 2.2 (aka Froyo). Judging by the specs, it’s an all-around solid device. It might not wow people with it’s small 2.8 inch QVGA capacitive touchscreen, but it should get the job done for most.

Pictures and specs also indicate a 3.2 megapixel camera, possibly with a dual LED flash and a little HSDPA 3G connectivity thrown in for good measure. At first glance, it actually looks like something that could really appeal to the masses of people that don’t want to pay hundreds of dollars for a huge 4 inch screen (e.g. Evo 4G, Droid X).

However, before you get your hopes up, I should mention that for now, it will only be available in China (bummer). No word on pricing or carrier availability, but an August launch is rumored for this device. More on this as it develops.

What do you think? Would you like to see more smaller, less overwhelming Android phones hit the market at cheaper prices? Sound off in the comments below!
