Admittedly, posting news on a comparatively lame Android phone is somewhat out of character for us; even more so, nerding out over the hardware of yesteryear. That said, there's a lot of value to be found among the masses in cheap, capable goods such as the upcoming Huawei IDEOS, a 2.8" Android 2.2 phone. The kicker? Rumor pegs the price at less than $200 - conceivably low enough to be used for prepaid plans.
Typical prepaid user.
We didn't see the tech specs anywhere, so we pinged Huawei for additional details. They aren't necessarily mind-blowing, but again, for less than $200, what do you expect?
