The T-Mobile Pulse was manufactured as the Huawei U8220 but we heard about the U8230 well before any of this. So where is it now? Apparently its in the hands of the folks at pointgphone (translated) who had the pleasure of reviewing the device courtesy of Bouygues Telecom in France:

Make no mistake about it – this is pretty much the EXACT same phone as the T-Mobile Pulse but it will almost assuredly come to market with a different name. The white model seen above will not see the light of day and rather a blue trim will hit the shelves – the reviewers like this as they say the white version seemed more toyish.

What did they conclude?

The Huawei U8230 is clearly not the Android smartphone of the year. That said, if it comes at a fair price and if these defects do not seem insurmountable (low internal storage, APN 3.2 mega pixels, 2.5 mm jack), he still ample satisfy you! Despite a rather classical aesthetics, there was still the mouth and if it does not spark at technical or application, it remains very competitive compared to what you can find on the market today.

Thank you Google Translate. If you want to read the full review… you can do so in either French or gTranslated English – go for it!
