Who wants to get upgraded to a smartphone without having to take out a loan to afford the phone?  AT&T just might have the deal of the century for you.  Granted they are going to offer you a low-end phone, when compared to others on the market, but nonetheless, you can get some pretty sweet features for a very, very affordable price.  The Huawei Impulse 4G phone will be available sometime this month and will come with a price tag of about $30 with a two-year contract with AT&T.  The Impulse 4G is an Android device and is made by Huawei.
The Huawei Impulse 4G is powered by the Android 2.2 operating system and comes with a 3.8-inch touch screen at an above average 480 x 800 pixel display.  Simple features of the new smartphone include a 5MP camera with flash and auto-focus that can also capture 720p HD video.  Even with these less than standard features available, you still get a nice phone that supports MP3 ringtones, large phonebook, calendar, alarms, SMS messaging, POP3 email and Google Talk instant messaging.  Memory can be expanded via microSD card, you can connect via Wi-Fi and Bluetooth technology is included.  The entire standard feature list that come with the Android operating system are also included with the new Huawei Impulse 4G.
The phone also supports music, video playback, comes with a browser that supports HTML and flash.  The Huawei Impulse 4G will support AT&T’s HSPA+ network, but you cannot expect super fast speeds due to the hardware specs we see here.  The processor speed is not mentioned anywhere yet, but I would imagine that it will not by more than 1 GHz at this price.  As mentioned before, the phone is running Android 2.2, but AT&T said that all Android phones that are released in 2011, will be upgraded to the newer 2.3 Gingerbread operating system soon.
The Huawei Impulse 4G phone will be released in the next ten days, but there was no confirmation that it will support the 4G LTE network through AT&T.  This is the first smartphone from Huawei that is available through AT&T, making it a “milestone” event for the new handset maker.  Not only is the phone affordable at $30 with a two-year contract, AT&T said the low-end monthly data plan required can be purchased for about $15 per month.
