T-Mobile to offer Huawei Pulse to pre-paid customers

Prep-paid phone customers typically get the shaft when it comes to phone choices. However, T-Mobile UK customers will get a temporary reprieve in an Android-powered phone. T-Mobile UK will offer the Huawei Pulse to pre-paid customers rather than demanding a contract. The Pulse will arrive in October at a cost of £179.99 ($293 USD). It will then cost £5 per day for mobile service and £1 per day for using the Internet. I’m not familiar enough with the carrier charges in the UK to know if this is a good deal or not but it seems a little high from a Yankee’s perspective.

The Pulse comes with the following specifications:

  • HVGA resolution, 3.5-inch touchscreen, 320 x 480 pixels
  • Quad-band GSM connectivity
  • 3.2MP camera with autofocus
  • GPS
  • 2GB internal memory, expandable MicroSD slot
  • Qualcomm MSM7200A chipset at 528MHz
  • Talk time up to 210 minutes
  • Standby time up to 300 hours
