If you are in the market for an entry level smartphone, then there are dime a dozen choices for you to pick from. Unfortunately, just which one will you look at for the long run with so many options around? Well, you might want to take a closer look at the Huawei Ascend Y200 that looks set to arrive Stateside in a few months’ time. While this bit of information did not come officially via an announcement at CTIA 2012, a little bit of sleuthing around yielded some results, where the Ascend Y200 remains part of Huawei’s latest strategy when it comes to naming their handsets. As “Y” stands for youth, it more or less points to the mass market who wants entry-level phones with smaller displays and lesser features.
Hardware specifications of the Huawei Ascend Y200 include the Android 2.3 Gingerbread operating system, a 3.5″ touchscreen display, a 1GHz processor, and a 3.2-megapixel camera sans flash. No word or pricing or availability, and as mentioned earlier, there was no official announcement made by Huawei, so we decided on the back door route of listening to Huawei’s executive vice president of products, James Jiang, say that it ought to be out in the US sometime in the near future.
