Cricket, a wireless provider in the US, has just announced that they will be rolling out the Huawei Ascend Android-powered handset which certainly won’t break the bank. Touted to be the first low-cost Android smartphone Stateside, it will feature a 3.5-inch, 640 x 240 resolution touchscreen display, Wi-Fi connectivity, a 3.2-megapixel camera, a microSD memory card slot, Android 2.1 and MP3 playback support. For $55 monthly, you get unlimited talk, local and international texting, 411 information, navigation, unlimited video and picture messaging and unlimited data use on Cricket’s 3G network. Sounds like a pretty good bargain, so look out for this from the middle of this month onwards for $150 a pop if you do not want to be tied down to a lengthy contract. Get this if basic functionality is up your alley and you do not feel small amidst friends who tote iPhones and high end HTCs.
