The Huawei Summit is now available at T-Mobile. The existence of this featurephone has been rumored since August, but before a few days ago we weren’t even sure that it was a phone, for all we had to go by was its name.
Well, all the details are now out in the open. A phone it is, but interestingly it’s not an Android smartphone – despite the ‘Android buttons’ being present, as you can see from the image below.
Hence, we can call it a featurephone designed to mimic a smartphone. It remains to be seen who exactly will consider that to be a good idea.
The Summit has a 3.5-inch 320×480 touchscreen, a 3.2 MP camera, Wi-Fi, 3G, GPS, stereo Bluetooth, microSD card slot, and a 1,400 mAh battery.
It can be yours right now for $49.99 with a new two-year contract. Unlike with smartphones, you won’t need to get a data plan for this device. So there’s that.
Because otherwise, we’re having trouble imagining why anyone would choose a smartphone lookalike over an actual smartphone, especially as this isn’t even free on contract. But to each her or his own, as they say.
If for some reason you’re interested in picking one of these up, this is where you need to go.
