It’s turning into a day of low-cost Android, it seems, with the T-Mobile Pulse arriving on pre-pay and contract for UK users. The Pulse – made by Huawei – is available from today priced at £176.16 ($282) as a pay-as-you-go device with no contract, or free with an 18-month agreement costing £27.50 ($44) or more.
The Pulse has a 3.5-inch 320 x 480 touchscreen, 3.2-megapixel autofocus camera and GPS, together with HSDPA/HSUPA (7.2Mbps d/l and 2Mbps u/l) and Bluetooth. There’s also the usual access to the Android Market, and Huawei have tweaked the phone’s homescreen with a new theme and five (rather than the usual three) panes.
Full specifications of the Pulse are here, and T-Mobile UK throw in a 2GB microSD card, a month’s trial of TeleNav turn-by-turn navigation, and Microsoft Exchange support. No word on whether the Pulse will ever show up in the US, though.
