But what you will get is a highly adequate device at an extremely cheap price point: the Ascend is only $150 without any need for a contract or limb amputations or anything else – just fork over the green.
According to Engadget, the Huawei Ascend is a plasticky phone that features an unimpressive 3.5-inch HVGA screen, 3.5mm headset jack, MicroSD slot, and a 3.2MP camera. Impressively it’s running a 9-screen home panel with Android 2.1 – nice touch. The Huawei Ascend should be available in the next couple weeks.
