AT&T announces the Huawei Impulse 4G, an entry-level Android smartphone for $29.99

AT&T announced today the release of the Huawei Impulse 4G, a budget-priced Android smartphone, for $29.99 with a two-year contract. We originally thought the Impulse 4G will be AT&T’s first LTE device and that it will be a Samsung device but we guess that Big Blue had different plan for this phone. It will be available starting September 18 through AT&T stores,  ATT.com and authorized retailers. So if you’re looking to save a couple of bucks, you may way want to consider this phone or maybe the LG Thrill 4G which is selling for the same price and has better specs.
Here are the key features of the Impulse 4G:

  • 3.8” Capacitive WVGA Touchscreen
  • Operating System: Android 2.2
  • 5MP Camera with auto-focus, flash, and 720p HD video record
  • Wi-Fi with access to AT&T’s Hotspots
  • GPS Navigation
