Looks like a Samsung Fascinate. If this were coming out RIGHT NOW, I would get it. But in Late 2011 the next Nexus will be out and the Samsung Galaxy S II will be on all carriers meaning this phone came out too late. I would drop my Droid Charge like a bad habit and get this phone right now if it were out today. Good luck Huawei.

At least Huawei started of a high end device with a light UI. Good for them.

I know Verizon phones can be flashed over to work on Cricket's network but does that work in reverse as well? Could I buy this and then have it activated on Verizon? Would there be any side-effects of doing that?

Cricket's service works the best where I live (Central San Diego/Old Town area), and I'm really looking forward to trying out this phone! I have an Ascend 2 now, and it's ok, but I really want a faster processor, video light/flash, better camera w/autofocus so I can scan barcodes, etc..

I am looking forward to trying this phone out also. I have a Zio, but Im really looking for a better camera and processor. Cricket is actually expanding and getting better. This is probably how Verizon, US Cellular etc. started out. Over time they got better coverage. Soon Cricket Will be expanding and probably over ride Verizon. Compared to other cell phone companies I am saving over $200 just by switching over and no contract!

...I too had a piece of crap ZIO it did everything but make a pot of coffee or a descent phone call!
Some scumbag did me a favor by stealing it! I've done a lot of research and rather than getting an HTC and jail breaking it from Verizon, I'll wait for the Glory to come out; then read some more reviews on it and slam $300 for it (maybe less online)
