Huawei Ideos launches in UK

The Huawei Ideos has finally arrived to the UK. It’s a very highly-regarded entry-level Android smartphone, which is already available at well-known online retailer Expansys.

The phone will cost you £149.99 SIM-free, but there are also a variety of contracts offered by different UK operators, though you have to sign long-term agreements.

As for the technical specs of the device, we should remind it operates on a 528 MHz processor, is equipped with a 2.8-inch 240×320 touchscreen, a 3.2-megapixel autofocus camera, HSDPA support, Wi-Fi 802.11n, GPS, and Bluetooth. It’s also got stock Froyo on board, and updates to future versions of the OS were promised back when the device was unveiled. It remains to be seen, however, if it will ever get a taste of Gingerbread.
