Chinese handset maker Huawei has big plans for the North American smartphone market. Although the company is mostly known for its low-end devices, Huawei promised several top-tier smartphones would make their way onto shelves this year.
Until then, Huawei recently teamed up with T-Mobile USA to offer customers the low-budget Huawei Prism
, which can be purchased for as low as $19.99 USD with a new two-year agreement, or $149 USD off-contract.
Huawei plans to launch a second budget-friendly Android phone in the States, the M660. The smartphone has just been spotted at Bluetooth SIG
and seems to be aimed at MetroPCS.
The device is powered by Android 2.3 Gingerbread platform and packs an 800 MHz single-core processor, as well as a 3.2-inch capacitive touchscreen display. In addition, Huawei M660 supports CDMA2000 (800/1700/1900MHz bands) and comes with a full QWERTY keyboard.
