Huawei Ideos Announced Officially

Huawei has just officially announced its new phone Ideos, their first smartphone runing Android 2.2. Some live pics of the device are already available, along with an official promotional video.

The Huawei Ideos is not a high end device by any stretch of the imagination, but aims to cater to the low end of the smartphone market, where not many Android-powered offerings have gone before.

Here are the main features of the Ideos:

  • OS: Android 2.2 and is a “with Google” phone – no custom UI overlays or any such nonsense present, guaranteed updates to new versions of the OS as soon as Google releases them
  • comes with all the benefits of Android 2.2: storing apps on the microSD card, 3G WiFi hotspot for up to 8 devices, and Adobe Flash support in the browser
  • 2.8″ 240×320 touchscreen
  • 528 MHz processor
  • HSDPA, WiFi 802.11n, GPS, Bluetooth
  • 3.2 MP autofocus camera, no flash

The Huawei Ideos will be available within a week in some markets, and will cost $100-$200, depending on market. It will be available in four colors: yellow, blue, black and purple.
