Huawei Prism release date with T-Mobile is set for May 6th - pricing is still a mystery
Wow, it’s hard to imagine it, but we first heard about the T-Mobile bound Huawei Prism way back in February, where it was made known alongside the Samsung Galaxy Blaze 4G and HTC Vile (which is the HTC One S). With all of that time behind us, we’re finally learning about a launch date for the entry-level Android powered smartphone.

Looking over some recently leaked guides pertaining to the handset in question, it details the date of May 6th as being the day when we can expect it to launch. In fact, it looks like big box retailer Best Buy will be the one to partake in this new handset, though, one vital component about it is still missing as of right now. So what’s that you ask? Well, it’s none other than pricing, but it’s expected to be very easy on the pockets either way.

As for specs, the Huawei Prism features a 3.5” HVGA (320 x 480) display, 600MHz single-core processor, 2GB of internal storage, Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich, and a microSD card slot. Also, the leaked documents tell us that the handset will be available in two various grey color schemes, and another model painted in red.

Aside from Best Buy, retail giant Walmart is also expected to launch the handset afterwards on May 9th – while T-Mobile’s retail channels will start receiving inventory on May 23rd.

my guess is HTC started wanting a premium for the sets. Price fights are normally the reason people switch manufacturers.

This phone looks much too similar to the Huawei Fusion on the at&t gophone line up. If T-mobile tries to sell this phone for more money than at&t does they will never sell a single unit.
