According to the crew over at Techlogg, Boost Mobile have just launched the low-end Huawei U8300 for $149, making it Australia’s cheapest prepaid Android device. The U8300 isn’t all that feature packed, and lacks amazing specs, but what it doesn’t have in specs it makes up for in it’s insanely low price point. It’s almost at the price where you can forgive it for having a 2.6″ QVGA resistive display, as it’s a great little phone for non-stop ‘texters’ and social networkers. Hit the break for full specs.

Full specs of the U8300:

Size/Weight: 94 Length, 64 Width, 11 Thin; 100 gr TBD
WiFi 802.11b/g
BT 2.1 (A2DP)
MicroUSB (High Speed USB)
Digital compass
MP3 playback
FM radio
Micro SD card slot (support up to 16GB)
A-GPS
UMTS 2100/900
EDGE 850/900/1800/1900
HSDPA 7.2Mbps
3.2 Megapixel Camera
Camera LED flash
24 FPS Video Encoding
4 x Digital Zoom TBD

If someone wants to earn some dollars, get one and ship to me in Sweden,
I pay AUD 50 extra + ship. Can do PayPal.

wow this looks like crap… it doesnt matter about being the cheapest, if the phone is not pratical or it is just crap cheap shit just so you can have android but restricts you in certain ways, I would not like this at all.. Bloody rubbish

I don’t get this at all. Two back buttons but no menu button? And where is the search button?

A quick search brings up the screen res of 320 x 240 (eww btw) but what is the CPU/GPU? And more importantly what version of android?

Not that I really care with a resolution that low and a keyboard layout that stupid 😛
