T-Mobile Prism priced by T-Mobile at $150 contract-free
T-Mobile has gone ahead and priced the entry-level Huawei Prism handset aimed at first-time smartphone users. Arriving in stores on May 6, the Android 2.3-powered handset will cost just $20 after a $50 mail-in rebate and on a two-year contract. Contract-free, the phone will cost $150.
The device ships to Best Buy on May 6, Walmart on May 9 and in T-Mobile stores on May 23. Other specs include a 3.5-inch, 480x320 (HVGA) screen, 2GB of storage (upgradeable to 32GB with a SD card), and a 3.2-megapixel rear camera. The 600MHz processor means the phone will likely never get an Android 4.0 updated. It should ship in two shades of gray and one in red.
