It seems Australian carriers are gearing up for the Christmas period with various offerings. The latest comes from Optus, offering the Huawei Ascend Y210 Android powered smartphone for $79 on pre-paid.

As you might expect, an ground-floor price gets you ground-floor specs. The Y210 isn’t going to set the world on fire:

  • 3.5″ TFT capacitive touchscreen (165 ppi)
  • 512 MB ROM
  • 256 MB RAM
  • 1 GHz Cortex-A5 CPU
  • Adreno 200 GPU
  • Qualcomm MSM7225A Snapdragon chipset
  • 2 MP rear facing camera
  • Wi-Fi 802.11 b/g/n, Wi-Fi hotspot
  • Android v2.3.6 (Gingerbread)
  • Connectivity: 3G: 900 / 2100 MHz

Remember, this is a sub-$100 phone. GSM Arena has the phone’s full specs.

The device is currently listed as “out of stock” on Optus’ site, but is available in-store or through retail partners (Kmart, Coles, Target, etc).


Are you in the market for a cheap Android smartphone? Does the Huawei Ascend Y210 tickle your fancy?

Things like this Huawei need to actively be prevented from being sold, as they are on a far too old version of Android.
