While Huawei’s MyTouch phone for T-Mobile has been known to exist, it’s been escaping the grips of many-a people up to this point. Engadget procured the phone, however, and posted a hands-on for all to see. The device is placed in the low-end to mid-range market with its 1.4GHz S2 processor, 4GB of internal storage, 1GB of RAM, a VGA front camera, a 5 megapixel rear camera, and a 4-inch display. A spec-sheet lists it as having Android 4.0 but the unit handled only has 2.3.6 and a custom user interface. This device also features a nice spring-loaded slide-out keyboard.
