T-Mobile Prism II from Huawei may launch tomorrow for $116 total
If you're looking for a very inexpensive device, T-Mobile may have exactly what you're looking for. Rumor has it that the T-Mobile Prism II from Huawei is going to launch on the carrier tomorrow, and the best part about it is that the device can be yours for just $116. Not $116 up front; $116 total.

Of course, at that price, you're getting what you pay for. The device is definitely in the budget category, and comes with a 3.5" 480 x 320 display, a 1GHz CPU, 512MB of RAM, a 3.2-megapixel camera, 4GB of expandable storage, a 1,750mAh battery, and Android 4.1 Jelly Bean. 

According to the T-Mobile website, the device is "coming soon", but a carrier representative has apparently told Engadget that the device is going to be released tomorrow.

I have a bricked Prism laying around. No service center would take it because it's a Huawei phone, and T-Mo wouldn't give me a refund. Worst mistake I've ever made.

The thing got bricked when upgrading to Android 2.3.6. Official upgrade, nothing shady.

tl;dr: I wouldn't get one nor recommend it to anyone. You're better off looking up for 2011 mid-rangers on ebay.

That's so cheap... But well, for $14 more you should pick up the Lumia 520, slightly bigger screen, and I would think over all better performance.
Still amazing it's so cheap.

this will be a "lagdroid"

it sucks that someone will end up with it

i sincerely hate low-end androids, you should always go for last years mid-range
