Wind Mobile has just announced their first Android handset, the Huawei U8100. It’s not the HTC Magic, but it’s a start. For $160, you get a 2.8″ QVGA touchscreen, 3.2 megapixel camera, 3G, A-GPS, Wi-Fi, and Android 2.1. Not a bad deal at all.
It’s high time Wind offered something with Android, as its popularity is exploding, and the hardware is prolific. Now that they’re offering an Android handset, a BlackBerry, and a Symbian phone, the one conspicuously absent player is iPhone; unfortunately, Wind getting a deal with Apple will likely depend on T-Mobile getting it first (since they operate on the same AWS bands and are much bigger).
If you were holding out on switching to Wind for an Android phone, now’s you’re chance – find the Huawei U8100 in their online store.
