T-Mobile Comet

Remember that Huawei Ideos that the Wall Street Journal seemed to think was headed to T-mobile?  The good folks over at TmoNews got their hands on some internal docs that show it as the T-Mobile Comet, coming on Nov 3.  Before you turn away at the thought of another cheap, entry level Android handset, consider this -- the Ideos ships with Froyo on board.  Stock, beautiful vanilla Android 2.2.

No word on final specs or pricing, but expect them both to be low.  And that's OK.  To me, a low spec "beginner" phone is just fine as long as the manufacturer takes the time to make it work well and uses the latest version of the operating system they can get their hands on.  I'm looking forward to playing with this one.  [TmoNews]
