We’ve had some pretty good indicators that the Huawei Summit would be available before the end of October and that appears to be the case, and its certainly an interesting take on the Android platform. The Huawei Summit is for all intents and purposes, a feature phone with a stripped down Android OS base that lacks Google services. The Summit is 3G capable, 3.5″ HVGA touchscreen feature/smartphone, with Wi-Fi calling enabled, visual voicemail, Email (no exchange), FM Tuner, TeleNav GPS and a 3 megapixel camera. We’re told that the Huawei Summit will be available for both postpaid and prepaid accounts and will not require a data plan.
Our takeaway on the Huawei Summit is that it’s a lower-tier device targeted for Teenagers and those of you with minimal mobile needs. In any case, it’s available from T-Mobile.com for $49.99 starting today.
