Huawei’s MediaPad might have grabbed all the headlines this week where an Android-powered tablet is concerned, but that doesn’t mean the company doesn’t have any more other tricks up their sleeves. No sir, Huawei has a couple more handsets that run on the Android operating system, with the Huawei Sonic being the first of the two. Arriving in Turkey first (no idea on a Stateside release), it will retail for around $215 sans contract, sporting Android 2.3 Gingerbread right out of the box, a 3.5″ HVGA display, a 3.2-megapixel camera, 256MB RAM, and 512MB ROM. What sets it apart would be the integrated NFC chip which will make it ready to usher in the age of wireless purchases.

As for the Huawei Glory, this will be arriving Stateside via Cricket Wireless, and it will retail for less than $300 sans contract according to PCMag. Interestingly enough, the Glory too will have Android 2.3 Gingerbread shipped with the phone, sporting a 1.4GHz single-core Qualcomm MSM8655T processor, a 4″ TFT display at 854 × 480 resolution, an 8-megapixel rear-facing camera with LED flash and front-facing camera2GB memory. Rather decent, don’t you think so?
