Huawei Attempts Smartphone World Domination, T-Mobile Pulse is the Target
There is no question that Chinese manufacturer wants to emulate the success of Taiwan’s HTC and release smartphones into the wild and gain acceptance. Huawei’s already got a couple deals cooked up, and now it’s setting its site on T-Mobile with yet another Android device, joining the ranks of HTC’s T-Mobile G1 and the newly released MyTouch 3G, essentially a US variant of the HTC Hero.
Huawei’s entry into the Android space is getting crowded, with Samsung and Motorola, among others, already committing to Google’s open handset platform.
IntoMobile lists the specs for the device, which has been given an 8820 code internally, as: a touchscreen 3.5-inch display, WiFi (the device was recently certified for WiFi use with the Pulse moniker), Bluetooth, 3-megapixel camera, and 256MB on-board memory (but there’s a card slot).
