The above device may look familiar, but it was announced 4 days ago by Huawei. The IDEOS is a low-end device that is aimed to push the limits of performance at a low ($200-) price.

Some features just to get you interested:

Key features:
– Android 2.2 Froyo Operating System, with access to Android’s library of 80,000+ apps

– Embedded 3G to Wi-Fi modem/router – share your 3G connection with up to 8 devices at once

– Dual 7.2Mbps 3G and Wi-Fi 802.11n connectivity

– Google Maps Navigation with in-built A-GPS, Google Voice Search

– 2.8” QVGA (320×240) TFT Capacitive Touch screen, plus 5 way navigation pad

– 3.2-megapixel camera with dual-LED flash

– Smart sensors – ambient light sensor automatically adjusts screen brightness for longer battery life, accelerometer to automatically adjust screen layout, proximity sensor and compass

– Supports SD cards of up to 16GB

– MicroUSB port

Honestly, for that price and those specs (although the display could be better), it’s looking like a very well placed low-end device. Let’s hope a carrier picks it up 🙂

What I notice missing from these low-end devices is the spec I’m most interested in – the processor speed.

It’s Qualcomm 528Mhz – same as the Magic I think?

I’m pretty sure this will be picked up by a particular carrier

hopefully the lack of a UI will mean this guy will get regular updates.
