Huawei clearly doesn't think so. Exhibit A is the Huawei Ideos, a prepaid handset that at the time of writing can be bought for AU$99 outright. From what we've seen Huawei will ship the X5 with the stock Google Android user experience, so no fancy Sense UI or Touchwiz — though to be honest, we've heard so many mixed reviews from readers about the user interfaces of both HTC and Samsung that keeping the UI simple is probably a good option.
It will be interesting to see if battery life is something you sacrifice for a AU$350 handset. Earlier this week, we highlighted the basic Huawei Ideos as an Android phone that was priced under $100, and Telstra has also joined the budget Android market this week. It’s for sale through Crazy John’s and Dick Smith.
The Ideos X5 is available $0 on a $29 cap from Crazy John’s, or users can buy two handsets for $0 on Crazy John’s $49 Twin Cap deal. Crazy Johns has cut the price of the Ideos 8150 to $99, for online purchases only. Huawei Australia devices marketing director, Mark Treadwell, had foreshadowed launch of the X5 and the X6 in December, promising low prices.
"The IDEOS X5 is Huawei's highest-spec smartphone at an unbelievably affordable price," said Huawei Australia devices marketing director Mark Treadwell. The Huawei IDEOS X5 is the second Android-powered smartphone the Chinese telecommunications company has officially released in Australia following the Huawei IDEOS U8150, which is currently the cheapest Android phone sold in Australia.
The Huawei IDEOS X5 Android phone is available today for $0 on a $29 cap from Crazy John's, and can also be purchased for $349 outright at Crazy John's and Dick Smith stores.
