T-Mobile will follow up the first ever Android mobile, the G1, with a new handset from Chinese manufacturer Huawei, the company has confirmed.
T-Mobile may have lost out on the HTC Magic (the ‘G2′ effectively) the company remains committed to the Android platform and made no secret of its interest in Huawei’s device at the Mobile World Congress. At the time, all that was known of the new phone was a sleek looking but non-functional prototype with no available specs.
A spokesperson for Huawei said,”I can confirm that Huawei will be releasing the third Google phone on T-Mobile this year.” Known specifications for the handset now include a 5 megapixel camera, 3g & Wifi connectivity and a built-in headphone jack (fixing a major criticism of the G1).
T-Mobile is said to be pitching this as a low-cost device and, considering it looks like a dead ringer for a certain fruit-based smartphone due for a refresh around this phone’s July-ish release date, this could see more people deciding to give and Android device a try.
