Cincinnati Bell launches Android-powered Huawei Ascend X, its first 4G smartphone
Cincinnati Bell has released its first ’4G’ (read: HSPA+) phone. It’s the Huawei Ascend X, which looks like it’s related to the Ideos X6 (if it isn’t the exact same device). This is an Android-powered smartphone that has a 1 GHz Qualcomm Snapdragon processor, a 4.1-inch touchscreen, a 5-megapixel camera with 720p HD video recording, 2 GB of internal storage, 512 MB of RAM, microSD support up to 32 GB, Wi-Fi, GPS, Bluetooth, and the aforementioned HSPA+, which allows a theoretical download throughput of 14.4 Mbps, and 5.76 Mbps HSUPA. The Huawei Ascend X has a 1400 mAh battery.
While not in any way possessing any earth-shattering specs, at least not in this day and age (it would have been one of the top devices a year ago, for example), the Huawei Ascend X is a decent smartphone that can certainly hold its own in the upper-midrange segment. Perhaps its only downside is that it comes with Android 2.2 Froyo preinstalled, which is getting old really fast.
If you don’t mind that, and you’re interested, Cincinnati Bell will give you an Ascend X for $99.99 with a new two-year service agreement. That price includes free shipping. To order a Huawei Ascend X from Cincinnati Bell now, just go here.
