T-Mobile reportedly in talks to carry Huawei Ideos [video]

T-Mobile USA in in negotiations to carry Huawei's new Ideos handset -- an entry-level Android handset that will ship with Android 2.2, so says the Wall Street Journal. WSJ's unnamed source, however, says that it's unsure if the deal will go through, and to expect the answer in four to six weeks.

Huawei is better know for its telco equipment (that's the stuff your carrier buys for its towers and data centers), and a push to get into the U.S. smartphone market is somewhat new.  Any manufacturer who can ship a solidly built messaging phone replacement, that also runs the latest and greatest version of Android is OK in my book.  Bring it!  We're trying to track one down at IFA, in the meantime hit the jump to see Huawei's promo video for the Ideos.
