T-Mobile Prism is all official, priced at $20 on-contract or $150 outright
Right on cue, the Huawei Prism for T-Mobile is now official-official, as we’re given the rest of the missing details to the puzzle. Yesterday, it was made known that the budget entry-level smartphone would be arriving at Best Buy stores starting on May 6th – with Walmart getting it on the 9th, and T-Mobile stores scheduled to start selling it on May 23rd.

Simply named the T-Mobile Prism, hiding away Huawei’s name as usual, this handset is priced to sell at $19.99 with a 2-year contract and after a $50 mail-in-rebate. No doubt that’s cheap, but its $149.99 outright cost is equally as impressive – thus, placing it in the same realm as some prepaid smartphones.

Priced very low, we can’t expect much in the hardware department, but nevertheless, it’s going to bring forth all the wonderful features of Android. Specifically, it packs a 3.5” HVGA display, 3.2-megapixel rear camera, 3G connectivity, and Android 2.3 Gingerbread. Interestingly, its processor type wasn’t mentioned in the press release, but really, we can’t expect a pencil pusher with this one. For those of you that are curious, it’s speculated to be packing a measly 600MHz single-core CPU.

Therefore, if you’re on a strict budget, you ought to give the T-Mobile Prism a look. Of course, if you want to save yourself some more money in the long run, you might as well consider investing more money into buying it outright and placing it on one of the many prepaid plans that the carrier offer.
