(UPDATED) Huawei Ideos passes FCC certification Launching with Android 2.2


8/24/10 UPDATE

PC World is reporting that Huawei is going to launch this handset at the Internationale Funkaustellung (IFA) consumer electronics show, and indeed is going to launch with Froyo.  This is certainly a mid to low range handset however, but if you are on a tight budget (and live overseas), this could be a good option for you.  If you are looking for a compact handset that runs Android, take a look when it drops.

It looks like Android lovers are getting another choice in handsets, this time from Huawei. The Huawei Ideos is an inexpensive Android smartphone running on your standard GSM/GPRS Bands with a 2.8″ Capacitive Touchscreen and a 528Mhz CPU. With this squarely in the budget phone market, it refreshing to see the device launching with Android 2.2. With many handsets launching with 1.6 and some still launching with 1.5, seeing 2.2 out of the gate is refreshing to say the least. According to our source the phone will be available in Pink, Yellow and Blue. No release date has been announce for the US or abroad but expect pricing at around $250 unsubsidized

    “budget phone market, it refreshing to”
    Shouldn’t there be “budget phone market, it’s refreshing to”?

      Obsessive much?

  • A cheap Android phone finally comes out and they only offer it in blue, yellow, and pink? How about an Android smartphone in a normal color like black or grey?

    I guess you can just get a case.

    I’ve got one on my desk. Any questions?

    The blue looks fine.

    For a *cheap* handset it’s a beast. 2.2 on low specs phones make an OBVIOUS difference.

    Can’t handle LWP for shit, and there’s no 3D effects.
    7.2mbps HSDPA so data is great, and hotspot and USB tethering built in ala 2.2.

    Prolly will be one of the cheapest functional Exchange handsets around.

    Oh, it’s Google Experience too!!! Hooray!

    A really good phone. One of the fastest selling in Kenya right now. Cheap as hell and practically does all that a nokia n98 would do for me at 1/4 of the price.
