Chinese manufacturer Huawei, which is known for making telecommunications equipment for large scale operations, recently announced a new, budget friendly smartphone called the Ideos. According to a new rumor from the Wall Street Journal, these little phones may be coming to T-Mobile USA, possibly as soon as the holiday shopping season.
The Ideos is a small, touchscreen phone running Android 2.2. It features a 2.8" capacitive screen, WiFi, Bluetooth, GPS, mobile hotspot, and comes in several colors. Huawei promises that it will be very affordable, maybe even being $50 or less on contract. Check out Engadget's hands-on coverage for a closer look at the Ideos.
G2 coming in at $200, it's nice to see a cheap, not-terrible phone running Froyo.
