Chinese handset manufacturer Huawei prepares another entry-level handset for the Canadian market, the U6150
Huawei U6150 will be available via WIND
, as the handset is now listed on the carrier's “Coming Soon” webpage.
WIND customers will soon be able to purchase the phone for only $98 upfront and will be able to add various add-ons, including Voicemail, Infinite Bangladesh, Infinite China or Infinite Hong Kong.
Although the Huawei U6150 is an entry-level handset, it comes with Brew OS on board and SRS WOW sound enhancement.
For those who are not yet aware, the Brew MP has grown up to become a full operating system in the last months.
Furthermore, as new functionalities have been added that allow developers to deliver new UIs, applications, as well as services, Brew OS is slowly being recognized as a full-time operating system.
For the non-tech savvy Brew stands for Binary Runtime Environment for Wireless and is an application development platform created by Qualcomm
for CDMA mobile phones, but lately GSM support has also been added.
The main advantage of the mobile platform is that developers can easily port their applications among all Qualcomm devices.
Huawei U6150 comes with a 2.41-inches display with 262k colors support and 320 x 240 pixels resolution.
The main highlight of the phone is the full portrait QWERTY keyboard, as well as Qualcomm's Brew OS.
The rest of the phone's specs include: a sub-par 2-megapixel camera, GPS with A-GPS support, 23MB of internal memory and microSD card slot for memory expansion (up to 8GB).
The phone's 1200 mAh Li-Ion battery should provide users with up to 6 hours of talk time or up to 390 hours of standby time in WIND coverage zones.
According to the guys over at MobileSyrup
, WIND has confirmed that the Huawei U6150 will hit shelves on June 23rd.
