Huawei Mercury hits Cricket
The Huawei Mercury features a 4-inch FWVGA display that packs a resolution of 480x854. Running the show behind the scenes is a single-core 1.4GHz processor. The Mercury comes with 2GB of internal memory. On the back of the smartphone is an 8 megapixel camera, while the front houses a VGA camera for video-chatting. Unfortunately, there is no word on what version of Android the handset is running, although it is more than likely Gingerbread with Huawei’s custom user interface overlaying it.
The Huawei Mercury is now available at select retailers and can be had for a reasonable no-contract price of $250. Since it is an Android handset it will need to be activated on Cricket’s $55 per month rate plan. Given Huawei’s recent run of producing quality handsets are any of you going to consider picking up the Mercury? Tell us what you think.

It's a better-looking and better-spec phone than the Huawei / Motorola Triumph. And it cost $250 versus the $300 that Virgin Mobile wants for the Triumph.
I am going to have to keep an eye out for Huawei products when I replace my Triumph.

1,4 ghz power, 8 mp cam, no contract = WIN
The best spec phone on a pre-paid for now.
