Huawei Ideos launches Nov. 3 as the T-Mobile Comet
The Ideos is powered by a 528 MHz processor, and features a 2.8" screen. These specs aren't impressive when compared to other new Android devices, but the price point, Android 2.2 functionality, and attractive form will certainly draw some buyers.
The Ideos is part of an effort by carriers to offer strong entry level Android smartphones in their holiday lineup, like Verizon's Motorola Citrus, and Sprint's Sanyo Zio. This will convert new smartphone users and lock in more expensive contracts during the generous season. We think it will work beautifully.

Why would the writer of this article point out that no pricing has been announced and then in the very next paragraph say the price point is something that will atteact people? How could it be if ita unknown? This is pure speculation and bad journalism. If the price point is 150-200 it would compete directly with the high end choices.

Context clues and market trend. Judging by the specs why would it be anywhere near the $150 range? It's a giving that it's going to be a low price point but we don't know what type of low price point...aka unknow

From what I've heard it would be $150-200 UNLOCKED. It would probably be in the sub-$100 bracket on contract and who knows, maybe even free.
