T-Mobile launches first prepaid Android phone

Huawei-built post-paid Android phone at T-Mobile

T-Mobile in the UK will soon release its third Android-powered handset, though it will be the first to be made by Huawei rather than HTC and also the first anywhere to be offered on a pay-as-you-go pricing scheme. The Pulse will sport a 3.5-inch, 320x480 resolution touchscreen, along with HSDPA/HSUPA 3G network support for data.

As it's not an HTC handset, the Sense UI will not be present, though navigation outside of touch still uses a trackball. Users will instead get access to a MyCommunity online sync service which supports online messaging, along with a Media Center app. Otherwise, there is a 3.2-megapixel autofocus camera, a GPS sensor and Bluetooth. Storage comes in the form of an included 2GB microSD card.

The Pulse will become available at T-Mobile UK in October, priced at the equivalent of about $294. [via SlashGear]
