Huawei announces inexpensive Android 2.2 phone for India, and more to come

According to recent reports, Huawei has announced it will be bringing the Ideos U8150 to India, its popular and inexpensive Android 2.2 Froyo smartphone. It will apparently launch sometime this month, and will cost less than Rs. 8,000, putting it in direct competition against the recently announced Micromax Andro as well as the Galaxy 5, with some distinct advantages.

The first of those is the Ideos' Android 2.2 Froyo operating system, instead of 2.1 Eclair the Andro and Galaxy 5 possess. The next is a 2.8-inch capacitive touchscreen compared to the Andro’s resistive touchscreen.

Huawei will supposedly also be bringing its recently released (in Australia), higher-end Android Froyo handsets into the Indian market by mid-January, called the Ideos X5 and X6.

Check out the known specifications of the three phones below:
