Huawei Prism Hanging Around In The Wild, Already Available At Walmart, Best Buy

T-Mobile’s next partner device with the good folks at Huawei, the T-Mobile Prism has already seen a soft launch in Walmart and Best Buy stores as of May 6th. The device isn’t set to launch inside T-Mobile stores and T-Mobile’s website until May 23rd, but we’re not making you wait that long to get a look at the device itself. It’s handily a mid-range handset that first-adopters will glance over. Still, we’re told the phone exhibits almost zero lag and is a definite contender for T-Mobile’s low to mid-range offering.

The T-Mobile Prism is a 3G devices with a 3.5? HVGA display running Android 2.3. “The Prism allows customers to enjoy variety of entertainment and Web browsing experiences including social networking sites and thousands of applications from Google Play.”

I really hope T-Mobile’s efforts at supporting Huawei’s lower-end offerings pays off with release of the Ascend P1 S and Ascend D down the road.

    T-mobile should get that Ascend D and/or Ascend D XL and sell it for around $150 on contract. I think a lot of people would enjoy that performance on a budget! I know I would…

      I’ll be disappointed if the D Quad doesn’t come our way. That thing looks pretty tight and would make a big splash for the currently low end manufacturer.

    Stock Gingerbread. I wonder if it will get ICS before Jellybean comes out.

    (Re-phrase) I wonder if it will get ICS.

      looks like stock GB, but it isn’t.

      The device is made by Huawei…

    I like it. It would definitely be the kind of phone I’d recommend to friends who aren’t quite the geek some of us are. Gingerbread is definitely solid, even still. It is a lot more intuitive than ICS, which is powerful for us nerds, but overkill for a lot of people.

    Also dig the minimalistic style. The back looks like what HTC’s One X would look like if they didn’t feel the need to remind us who they were and that they were rockin’ Beats Audio.

    SOLD OUT online @ Best Buy. No way?!?!

    Great for prepaid phone, I can’t imagine many contract customers wanting it unless T-Mobile will let you have it without data on the Classic Plan. Also, could be a good phone for kids.

      There’s plenty of customer base that will take a turd with a touch screen if it’s free online.

    This is a solid little phone….Much higher quality than the Dart and Comet….Should be a hot seller in TMO stores.

    I’m not even joking. Handled this thing for a couple of minutes today. It’s so bad, it makes the Comet feel like a GSII.

    Aww look at the low-end andriod phone lol

  • Hello-Moto

    I don’t trust Huawei’s quality. The Comet & Dart were utter crap phones. This company’s products are arguably the worst among all the cell phone makers. This Chinese company has a long way to go to catch up with its Taiwanese, Korean, Finnish, and American counterparts.

      The Dart is made by Samsung smart one ^^^^
