The Ma’Bell network has quietly launched a budget priced HSPA+ capable Android OS powered smartphone, the Huawei Impulse 4G, which is mid-range and budget priced handset. We first heard about the Impulse 4G brand name for a Samsung handset, which is supposed to be AT&T’s first LTE capable handset. But the Impulse 4G, made by the Chinese manufacturer Huawei is a HSPA+ capable phone only. The Impulse 4G is Huawei’s first smartphone for AT&T, and Huawei’s U.S. president has stated that company is committed to working with AT&T to offer more handsets in the future.
Huawei Impulse 4G Specs:
# Still running on Android 2.2 Froyo OS.
# 3.8-inch WVGA display with 480 X 800 pixel of resolution.
# 800MHz Single-Core SoC, 512MB RAM.
# 5 Megapixels camera with flash, autofocus.
# 720p HD video recording capability.
# GPS Navigation.
# Preloaded AT&T Code Scanner, AT&T Family Map, AT&T Navigator apps.
.. and all the regular features of an AT&T Android phone.
From the above specs, we can say that the Huawei Impulse 4G isn’t a powerhouse by any means, but you can’t really expect much more from a $30 device and you shouldn’t mind the 2-year contract that comes along with it. Yes! It will cost you just $29.99 on a two-year contract with AT&T and you will be able to purchase starting September 18th.
