Huawei Ideos to launch in India this month for a sub 8K price

One of the most talked about Android launches of the year is finally making its way to India. At the ongoing India Telecom 2010, we visited the Huawei booth and got out first good look at the cheapest Android 2.2 smartphone.

Huawei Ideos was first announced at the IFA trade fair in Germany, and subsequently launched in many countries and got rave reviews, but it is yet to make its debut in India. During our small talk with the Huawei Team, they said Ideos will be the first of their Android 2.2 range to be launched in India and it will happen very soon i.e. this month. Officially they have not decided a final price for the smartphone, but according the company, the price would be sub Rs 8,000; we hope it comes down to sub 7,000 to beat Micromax Andro pricewise.

Huawei Ideos is a feature packed FroYo powered smartphone, which was manufactured in partnership with Google to make Android a mass OS. It features a 2.8-inch capacitive touchscreen, 528MHz processor, 3.2MP camera, brightness, proximity and accelerometer sensors built in, MicroSD storage, Android Vanilla UI, HSDPA, Bluetooth and Wi-FI connectivity.
