T-Mobile Properly Announces the Huawei Ideos Android Smartphone as the Comet

Updated:2010/11/2 08:45

A recent leak we’ve seen said the T-Mobile Comet was going to cost $149.99 and boy was it wrong, at least from a certain point of view, as the same leak showed the correct Motorola Droid 2 Global price too. T-Mobile has officially unveiled this Huawei Ideos device today as the Comet, and the phone will only cost $9.99 with a new two-year contract.

The phone will also be available off contract in which case you can expect to pay less than $200 for it, less taxes and fees, so maybe that $149.99 price was right after all.

The Comet is therefore one of the cheapest Android handsets coming out this holiday season in the USA, and one of the four devices T-Mobile is prepared to lure Android customers in with: the T-Mobile Comet, the LG Optimus T, the Motorola Defy and the Motorola Charm.

The T-Mobile Comet is not your average super smartphone, but I guess that cheap price kinda gave that all away. The phone will offer a 528MHz processor, 2.8-inch touchscreen display, 3.2-megapixel camera and Android 2.2 Froyo under the hood. Other features include one-click access to your favorite Google services (Google Maps, Gmail, YouTube) and over 100,000 applications in Android Market.

It’s definitely interesting to hear that such an entry-level to mid-ranged Android handset can offer Froyo features to Android fans. I bet there are quite a few Android fans out there stuck with 2009 entry-level Android devices that won’t go past Android 2.1. You could always sell your old handsets and go for this cheap Huawei Ideos handset instead.

The T-Mobile Comet will be available in T-Mobile stores starting with November 3 but it will also hit Best Buy, Radio Shack and Target locations as a pre-paid device. And since earlier today we showed you T-Mobile’s new mobile data plans and tethering plans, you might want to check them out before choosing the Comet as your next Android device.
