SMART Huawei IDEOS U8150 Android Phone : Specs, Photos

I once called Huawei IDEOS 'the cutest Android smartphone thus far'. And to this day, I stand by that statement.

I mean, just look at it:

For those who've long been waiting for this Android 2.2 handset to land here, here's great news;

Smart Communications recently posted this banner on their official Facebook page --

Smart is calling it 'The Most Affordable Android 2.2 Smartphone in the country' so I'm expecting to be priced at around Php 8,000 or less.

Official pricing details aren't available as yet but at least we're sure that the phone will soon be available to Smart Gold and Smart Buddy subscribers.

While we're waiting for further updates, you might want to check out the complete technical specifications of Huawei IDEOS U8150 --

  1. do you have any idea as to where we can buy Huawei Phones just in case some of their phones are released here in the Philippines?

  2. Smart offer this free for plan 500. It's great as a wifi tethering gadget for my motorola xoom. Its fast and perfect as a back up phone.

  3. you can check from ephone megamall

  4. huawei ideos is 6988pesos open line

  5. Do not buy this phone. The units are oftentimes defective. Too many people are returning their units at Globe.

  6. may i ask? which is better? this one or Samsung corby?

  7. Samsunb Corby II is better. masyadong mura yong pagkuha ng telco direct sa kay Huawei... wala silang ibang name may na isip... often times defective pala ah... I called it Huwawei Idiots!
