Huawei Ascend low-cost Android phone announced by Cricket

Regional US carrier Cricket has just announced its second Android phone, the Huawei Ascend.

Like the Kyocera Zio (released by Cricket in August), the Ascend is a low-cost Android handset. Available starting mid-October, the handset will cost only $149.99 free of contract.

The new Huawei phone runs Android 2.1 and features a 3.5 inch HVGA touchscreen display, Wi-Fi, music player, and 3.2MP camera, and MicroSD card support.

Engadget has some live photos and a hands-on video of the Ascend:

Cricket says that the new phone will be offered on its “all-inclusive $55 Android plan, which provides users with unlimited talk, text, 411 information, navigation, international text, unlimited and video picture messages, and unlimited data services.”

You can now buy the  Huawei Ascend on Cricket contract-free for $139.99.
