For such a small carrier (the smallest out of the four US nationals), T-Mobile's got a pretty good selection of Android smartphones - the now infamous G2 from HTC, the Samsung Vibrant, and the Motorola Charm being just a few. Well, it looks like Huawei may be adding their own phone, the Comet (previously known as the Ideos), to that heap come November 3rd, along with a 3MP camera, GPS capabilities, and the Swype keyboard out of the box. Pricing hasn't been announced just yet, but judging by the features mentioned above (especially the 3MP camera, ugh) as well as the features seen in the screenshot below, it shouldn't be too expensive. Screenshot and video below.

    I think this phone could be a bigger game-changer than the G2. The pricing scheme fits with people who wouldn't normally get a smartphone, and T-Mobile's data pricing is quite reasonable as well.

    Hopefully the build quality isn't garbage. Beyond that, the fact that it's running 2.2 should give us an idea what a budget Android phone can really do. I plan to go to a T-Mobile store and try one of these out on launch day if possible.

      Doesn't T-Mobile have several other budget Android phones though? This one may be a bit better than the others (Motorola Charm, Cliq XT, etc.), but I still don't exactly see it as a "game-changer."
