WIND Mobile is getting ready to release another Android-powered device soon. The Huawei Ascend G312 has popped up in their marketing and this will probably be part of their holiday list of handsets. As for specs, runs Ice Cream Sandwich, has a 4-inch touchscreen display (480 x 800), 1.4-GHz processor, 5MP camera that captures 720 HD videos, 1GB of RAM. No word on an exact release date or pricing, but T-Mobile recently launched this as their newest “myTouch” device for $50 on a 2-year and $350 outright… so WIND might come in around that mark.

More soon…
(Thanks Alex!)

    For $350 outright, I’d rather buy a Samsung or HTC phone…

  • Mark

    Be careful! Their phone has some prolems about privacy.

    • Red Foreman

      so does your Iphone, or any other smartphone for that matter. :\

  • Acco

    I think the problem is that Huawei is associated with the entry level smartphone market.

    • kickstart

  • Mobilicity is BROKEn

    Huawei is an espionage tool being used by the communists!

    Very attractive model for Wind. Not high end, but definitely gets the job done, at a reasonable price. This will cost less than $350. The T-Mobile full price is just for show, no one pays it. And Wind already sells the Ascend P1 for $400, and that is a much more expensive model. Also, it’s nice that the G312 comes with ICS, as the T-mo model is on Gingerbread.

    Hmm… last time one of the new entrants sold a re-badged T-Mo MyTouch device it was a disaster – remember the HTC Panache? After the Panache disaster, I’d much rather pick up a Huawei (Chinese government spying and all) than another HTC, but I’d wait around for the reviews and to see if any major problems pop up before I’d even consider buying this phone.

    $350..ha..you can buy a BNIB galaxy nexus for $350 or less on kijiji.
    Or ask a friend/relative in U.S. to buy and ship a brand-new galaxy nexus.

  • William

    Please Wind get more brand name entry to mid level Android phones!

  • bobfreeze

    If this comes in at $250 I might consider on a Wind25 plan for $50. Much better than the Galaxy Q, their only other low-price Android option…

    Now, this model apparently has a QWERTY and non-keyboard version – any idea which WIND may get? I think it would be a winning strategy with the former, as they’re still quite the niche market for people stuck on keyboards.

    Huawei garbage again!? When is wind going to use that 200,000,000 subscriber muscle? So what if they are losing money they need to give the windidiots new phones!

    • hoo dat

      There there, Rocco. There there.
