Huawei Ideos Re-branded as T-Mobile Comet, Arrives November 3rd


T-Mobile has yet another Android handset lined up for the coming weeks in the form of the Huawei Ideos.  T-Mobile is re-branding the phone as the Comet and plans to offer it in both pre-paid and post paid fashion.  While certainly not a high end super phone like the G2 and upcoming myTouch handset, it does complement the carrier with a entry-level device sure to attract new buyers.  Details include Android 2.2, a 3 megapixel camera, Swype soft keyboard, and support for 3G, WiFi, and GPS.  Don’t look for this phone to be very expensive when it debuts November 3rd.  Maybe something in the $50 range like other carriers are doing for entry-level phones.

    The way T-Mobile has been pricing phones lately they will probably set the “MSRP” of this thing at $350 or more.

      The T-Mobile Comet (Huawei) arrives on November 3 for $9.99 after a $50 mail-in-rebate with a two-year service agreement….

        “Two year service agreement” “MSRP”

        You’re welcome. 😉

    Nice – it stripped my “” (which it might do again) …

    “Two year service agreement” -DOES NOT EQUAL- “MSRP”

    There. Better.
