T-Mobile launches first PAYG Android phone
T-Mobile has today launched the first pay-as-you-go Android-based smartphone.
The handset will be launched in October and will cost £179.99 on a pay-as-you-go contract. Unlimited data will be available for £5 a month or
£1 a day with a T-Mobile Internet Booster. Pay monthly contract pricing has yet to be confirmed.
The Pulse is T-Mobile’s third Android handset after the G1 and G2 Touch. It is designed to make social networking easier and offers one-touch access to the web.
The 130g smartphone is manufactured in partnership with Huawei. It features a trackball and a full touch-screen 3.5” HVGA display - the largest on an Android handset.
The Pulse also comes with a built-in GPS and T-Mobile is offering a free one month TeleNav SatNav trial. It has a 3.2 mega pixel auto-focus camera, a 2GB internal memory and a micro SD card slot for storing images and other media.
It also offers access to corporate email through the Road sync client.
