T-Mobile Pulse Mini Announced For Europe, Demoed

The T-Mobile Pulse has been out for sometime now, but it appears the trend of “Mini” versions of larger devices will continue – the carrier has just announced the T-Mobile Pulse Mini. The folks at ElectricPig/FoneHome are claiming it’ll be “the most up to date budget Android phone yet” and they’re absolutely right – this thing rocks Android 2.1 out of the box!

A few of the specs include a 2.8-inch QVGA screen, stylus for the resistive screen, 3.2 megapixel camera, HSDPA and Wi-Fi. The version above had its fair share of glitches and stumbles, but the phone is still a little ways from launch (date unknown) so we’ve been ensured these problems will be fixed prior to the consumer release.

The T-Mobile Pulse will hit Germany in April and probably the UK shortly thereafter.

    Looks like a rebrand of the U8110, much as the original Pulse was a rebrand of the U8220.

    I don’t understand why they would make a 2.8inch android phone; sure it’s a budget phone but 2.8inch solely on touch is really frustrating. I think they should follow sony ericson with their x10 mini version with a qwerty keyboard.

    hahahaha as i said yesterday, its just another phone by Huawei that looks exactly the same as every other phone they put out. this is just the t-mobile tap with android. (i currently own the tap)

    Sounds like something for my wife.

    Way too small IMO. Guess it’d be fine for those using it to listen/view/surf media, but I can’t see anyone over the age of 12 using the tiny on-screen keyboard regularly… and liking it.

    Depending on price, it might be a good low-budget, starter Android phone for the non-geek in your life.

    If it’s cheap, I’d recommend it to my parents.

    So is the T-Mobile Pulse Mini Huawei U8230?

    Sorry I meant U8220-6 as the Huawei U8230 is a completely different model already available.

    Nevermind as both Huawei U8100 & U8110 are the T-Mobile Pulse Mini.

    You’d be surprised how low-price attracts customers. Esp. for no-contract phones. The Acer Liquid is an example, good specs, not a lot of frills. This phone will be a success.
