Huawei Mercury hits Cricket

Huawei Mercury hits Cricket
Coming to Cricket Wireless just in time for the holidays is the Huawei Mercury which is an Android-powered smartphone that packs some pretty decent specifications for a no-contract offering.

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.
