Huawei Debuts New Android Phones Including Entry-Level Android 2.2 Ideos



While big name manufacturer’s can barely release one device without every bit of information leaking out beforehand, Huawei has been able to use their smaller stature to quietly and continually churn out cost-effective Android smartphones for markets all over the globe. The trend continues as the company has just announced a new lineup of four Android phones aimed to please across the board.

The Huawei Ideos is an “entry-level” Android 2.2 device that will be priced between $100 and $200 off-contract depending on the market. The Ideos is available in several color options and is focused at providing a seamless internet experience, including the ability to create a mobile hotspot for up to eight devices.

The Huawei U8800 is another Android 2.2 option, and this handset brings along HSPA+ capabiliteis with download speeds of up to 14 Mbps. It features a 3.8-inch widescreen display and also acts as a mobile hotspot.

The Huawei U8500 is a bit smaller in form factor with a 3.2-inch screen and gets a downgrade to Android 2.1. Also on 2.1 is the Huawei U8300 designed as another entry-level option for younger people and children.

The exact release details are not clear at this time, but Huawei plans to get these devices to carriers from Asia to Europe and even the United States.

  1. Wait, a 2.2 device with 3.8″ widescreen, HSPA+, and a camera with a dual LED flash for less than $200? Whoa! What other specs does this thing tout? Processor, RAM, Storage, etc…

  2. @Kevin…You read the article a bit wrong. The model they described with the pricing didnt have specs. The models with specs didn’t have pricing.

  3. Ok unless I’m wrong here…the internal spec is basically the HTC hero…and this comes with 2.2? So why isn’t htc pumping out 2.2 to us hero users?? Huffle-puff…..
