After Huawei's first Android smartphone was officially announced as the T-Mobile Pulse last week, we've just received information that the sister-model - the Huawei U8230 will hit further European countries soon as well. According to our information, the (so called) Huawei U8230 will be the same device as T-Mobile's Pulse, featuring the same specs but sporting a different industrial design (most likely because T-Mobile got exclusivity for the Pulse design). Powered by a Qualcomm 7200A chip at 528 MHz, the U8230 is said to run on Android 1.5 (Cupcake) and featuring quadband GSM/GPRS/EDGE as well as UMTS/HSDPA/HSUPA (up to 7.2 Mbps in down- and 2.0 Mbps in upstream), Bluetooth 2.0, WiFi b/g and GPS.

The 3.5" touchscreen supports the yet typical Android HVGA (480 x 320) screen resolution and the camera features 3.2 megapixel. The device is said to include all the common Android Google applications like Google Maps, YouTube and Android market.

A release can be expected for anytime Q4-09 and, according to our sources, Scandinavia and the Iberian peninsula will get it first with other regions to follow-up after. Prices or further details weren't disclosed today.

UPDATE: Sorry, we were wrong in terms of the product name. The Huawei legacy device is named U8230, not U8232 as initially mentioned.

Cheers ~ Arne
