Wind continues to expand their lineup – they have just released the Huawei U1250 for a very affordable $70. This entry level slim device has a 2-inch display (resolution of 240×320), 2 megapixel camera, 3.5mm audio jack, FM radio, can hold up to 8GB with a microSD card and weighs in at a light 90 grams.

We did a quick look around this device and the design reminds us a bit of the Motorola Renew. What’s nice about the device is that it has dedicated music keys for quick access to all your tunes. As mentioned above it can hold up to 8GB, so for such a small phone it can hold a great amount. The camera is only 2.0 mega pixels and can get the job done when sending pics to your friends. Another good feature is the 3.5 mm audio jack – nice addition and glad to see Huawei when for this versus a 2.5 mm. Good low cost starter phone.

Check it out here at WIND

    While the phone is not something I’m interested in, it’s great for people who are looking for a simple phone with basic functions. Especially the 70$ price tag, it’s really worth it.

    $70 and it actually looks sleek and nice. Great color selection by WIND. I’m going to get this for my sister. So glad I didn’t jump on and Rogers or Fido prepaid stuff.

    $70 is still too much for a crappy locked dumbphone that only functions on WIND which has zero coverage outside a handful of cities.

  • Tom

    That’s great. Does it support Java (i.e. J2ME) apps?

    … Really guys? Huawei.. really? Didn’t you learn with the other device from them? How many people returned the device… Too many to count, come on, think of another brand that’ll maybe.. work, and will get reception

    This phone rocks, the price, the looking, the functionalities. i cannot believe that this such a tiny phone can do almost everything. i just bought it, i love it.

    Actually Joe, its an unlock phone if you stay with wind for 1 or 3 months not sure… so your statement is false.

  • Dmitry

    Nice one, solid construction, very nice menu, very nice voice quality, nice price. Works very nice!!!

    But luck of specification and manuals for this phone

    I like WIND and this basic phone. No contract and $70 is a good deal. I just got it two days ago and I’m trying to customize the phone, like getting rid off the browser short cut on the prompt bar and changing the ringtone. If anyone figured it out, HELP… Thanks
