Huawei 8220 heading to T-Mobile as the Pulse


Details are still a bit sketchy on this one, but the powers of the Internets have uncovered yet another Android phone headed for T-Mobile. While its been known for some time that Huawei was crackin’ away at a couple of Android-powered pieces of kit, not a whole lot has been said thus far.

Late last week, the Wi-Fi Alliance gave the greenlight to a previously unannounced Huawei phone, with “Huawei 8220” as its manufacture maiden name. Wi-Fi Alliance certifications generally spark far more questions than they answer; this one, however, had a small gem tucked inside. There it was, right alongside the model number: “T-Mobile Pulse”. In one fell swoop, the certification disclosed the phone’s existence, gave away its final name, and told us which carrier it was headed for.

Gizmodo Brazil dug a bit deeper, managing to uncover the shot above, along with a handful of purported specs:

Here’s what we know so far:

  • Operating System: Android
  • Display: 3.5″ Touchscreen
  • Camera: 3 megapixel camera
  • Wireless: Wi-Fi, Bluetooth
  • Memory: 256 meg internal (Yeck!), microSD support up to 16GB
