T-Mobile announced its latest budget-friendly smartphone in the form of the T-Mobile Prism. This Huawei-made device will cost just $20 after a rebate and with a two-year contract. Users who don't want to commit to the contract can purchase the phone for $150. The Prism runs on Android 2.3 and features a 3.5-inch HVGA touchscreen. T-Mobile hasn't released a lot of other specifications about the phone, but it's been reported the Prism has a 600MHz processor. Although a 600MHz processor is weak by today's high-end phone standards, we suspect the phone's budget-friendly price will persuade many cost-conscious users. The smartphone will be available this Sunday, May 6.

I don't know Sarah, Amber, and my mom all joined me on T-Mobile, but they all went with the cheap Samsung android. The cheap smart phones I just don't get. Of course I guess you don't have to go top end either but the cheap ones defeat the point all together to me. The one they all got is a Samsung unit which seems to be very good with power but it just operates kind of screwy where it won't do anything sometimes etc.
