Want to know how to get an Android smartphone into more people’s hands? You do exactly what AT&T is doing by offering one for $30. Another kicker, by the looks of the screenshot, is it looks to be rocking stock Android 2.2 (huge bonus). We don’t have a full breakdown of specs on the Impulse 4G, but this is what we know so far:
- 3.8” Capacitive WVGA Touchscreen
- Operating System: Android 2.2
- 5MP Camera with auto-focus, flash, and 720p HD video record
- Wi-Fi with access to AT&T’s Hotspots
- GPS Navigation
- Dimensions: 120mm x 65mm x 11.6mm
It’s a pretty safe bet that this will not be a dual-core device (I could be wrong here), so existing sales like the dual-core LG Thrill at the same price might leave this one hanging in the wind. With that said, it’s likely this may end up being a free device with a contract, and there is always a place in this world for free stuff. I’m sure anyone on a budget who needs a new phone wouldn’t look away from this device in the store. This is AT&T’s first smartphone from manufacturer Huawei and will be available on September 18th.
