Although Huawei has launched a couple of Android devices in the market viz, the Ideos and the Impulse 4G, it was yet to launch a dual SIM Android handset, surprising considering that is the first feature they bring out in their phones. Which now they have with the Huawei U8520 (also called Deuce) which has been found on the FCC website as well replete with complete manuals.
Well, the Deuce runs on Gingerbread (Android 2.2) though we expect Huawei to update it later after launch. Its other features include:
- A 2.8″ HVGA display,
- 3G, Wi-Fi, GPS
- Qualcomm Snapdragon MSM8255 1GHz CPU
- 1500 mAh battery
Interestingly though, only one of the SIM will support 3G while the other SIM will only be able to support GSM networks. The U8520 is already available for sale in some of the Chinese and Australian websites. The phone also features WCDMA II and WCDMA V connectivity (1900 / 850 MHz) and thus making it possible for the handset to be launched by networks like AT&T and others in the US and Canadian market.
