This is why I LOVE Android. There’s a device out there for everyone! T-mobile is releasing the Comet (Huawei Ideos) on November 3rd, all for a whopping price of $9.99 (yes you read that right) with a 2 year contract of course. In addition, they are offering a 200MB data plan for $10.
The Comet sports a 2.8 inch screen and a Qualcomm 528 MHz processor. It supports a 7.2 Mbps HSPA connection and runs Android 2.2 (Froyo). I’ll also throw this one in there just for AppleGirl’s sake. The Comet comes with Swype already pre-loaded 🙂 (we all know how AppleGirl likes Swype). Honestly, for a phone with this screen size, Swype can be really useful.
Overall, not too shabby for a $9.99 phone and a data plan that will run you $10/month. This is a perfect phone for people that would not typically choose a smart phone. Think about it, you’ll have the power of Android at your finger tips. What’s not to love?

Finally a ($9.99) hardware that Android deserves 😉 Looks like Huawei/T-Mobile were just hit with an awesome idea. Accept defeat against the iPhone and go after the lower end market (dominated by Nokia)!
New smart phone users will be wooed by Comet’s price, but I’m sure the rookies will soon learn that there are better and smarter phones out there and that’s when they meet the iPhone 😀
Jokes aside, the best part of TMobile’s announcement is the cheaper data plan. Looks like the dam is cracking and the price of data is coming down. Woot! Let’s celebrate 😀
