TP calls it "The Cutest Android Phone" in the market right now. (And it definitely doesn't hurt that it's also the most affordable handset running the most updated version of the OS as yet.)
Check out Huawei Ideos U8150 --
Last night, Huawei, a leader in providing next-generation telecommunications network solutions for operators around the world, announced the IDEOS U8150, the most affordable Android smartphone in the Philippine market today. Powered by the latest operating system, Android 2.2 (Froyo), the IDEOS comes packed with all the essential and popular features that you would find in any other smartphones but at a fraction of the cost.
Available in black, yellow, blue, and purple, this compact phone acts as a hub and enables users to stay connected wherever they go, boasting simultaneous wireless support for up to eight devices at a time. Without having to use another device, IDEOS instantaneously turns into a password-protected wireless hotspot providing WCDMA + WiFi dual network support and downlink speeds of more than 7.2Mb/s.
Equipped with a 528MHZ processor and 256MB RAM, the IDEOS, with Froyo pre-installed, provides users a responsive and smooth interface on its 2.8-inch capacitive touch screen.
