According to a piece posted by Fortune magazine, T-Mobile is considering offering free Google Gmail email access to users of its soon to be launched G1 Android smartphone. If the plan comes to fruition, no…
The Pulse, offered by T-Mobile, has just been officially ousted as the company’s third Android offering. As mentioned before, the device is produced by Huawei and offers a sleek and smooth chrome shell along with HSDPA, Wi-Fi, GPS, a 3.5-inch HVGA touchscreen, and a 3.2 megapixel camera. Offering 300 hours of standby and 210 minutes of talk time, the Pulse is the first PAYG Android device available and doesn’t look too shabby for the money. Speaking of which, it will set you back £179.99 in October, and depending on the exchange rates, this is around US$295. Not too bad. There are a bunch of standard pictures after the jump, but if you want an extensive hands on, check out Pocket-Lint’s gallery here. Anyway, here is what T-Mobile had to say for themselves.
“We introduced the first Android handset, the T-Mobile G1 , to the UK back in October 2008, launched our second handset the G2 Touch earlier this year and now we’re opening up Android-based smartphones to a whole new type of mobile user with the first handset on pay-as-you-go. It really is a significant development in the Android story,” Nicola Shenton, T-Mobile’s acting head of handset and device marketing, said in a statement.
“We predicted back in June that we expected that one in five T-Mobile mobile internet users will have Android-powered devices by the end of the year and the launch of the T-Mobile Pulse is a major step in making this a reality.”
