Interestingly, it turns out that the Huawei M660 portrait QWERTY Android candybar is actually headed to Cricket, and not MetroPCS as we thought when it was first leaked last month.
The M660 has been caught in the wild today, and an ad-hoc photo shoot ensued. As you can see, it will run Android 2.3 Gingerbread.
The main selling point for this phone will undoubtedly be the combination of its keyboard and form factor. That’s because we expect it to have midrange specs, and with that rather outdated OS version it runs it’s pretty much settled.
It has a 3.2-inch touchscreen, and microSD card support. That’s all we know about it right now, helped in part by the fact that the M660′s manual has been posted online by Huawei (and you can reach it here). According to that particular document, the smartphone could end up being called Ascend Q, but we’ll have to wait and see in order to be sure. Speaking of that, perhaps Cricket should just announce it already.
