We know that Huawei would like to get their new IDEOS Android 2.2 smartphone into as many markets as possible, and thanks to a report in the Wall Street Journal we may be getting our first idea of where the handset may land in the United States. Word is the Huawei, based out of China, and T-Mobile are in discussions to bring the IDEOS to the carrier. If all goes to plan the deal should be hammered out over the next month for a launch before the holiday season.

This could mark a big turn for both Huawei who has very little presence in the US and low-cost Android handsets. The IDEOS could go for as little as $50 on a two-year contract. Sure it lacks the power of a higher priced phone, but the one factor that provides hope is the inclusion of Froyo as the OS the device will ship with, a big selling point compared to other low-cost Androids relegated to older versions of the operating system.
