Another budget smartphone joins the ranks at Vodafone.
Most people will know Huawei as more of an OEM than a manufacturer of own-brand hardware, but the company does produce its own devices and tomorrow we're going to see a brand new one hit UK shelves. The Ascend G 300 will arrive in Vodafone stores Friday and will be exclusive to the network, meaning if you want to get your hands on it, you better be willing to switch from your current provider.
All told, the G 300 isn't the most high-tech smartphone, especially at a time when Nvidia's quad-core Tegra 3 is hanging around. Still, it's a decent enough mid-range smartphone that runs Android 2.3, aka Gingerbread, and packs a 1GHz CPU, a 4-inch display, 2.5GB of internal storage (expandable via MicroSD), and a 5-megapixel camera.
The phone debuts on Vodafone tomorrow and will cost £100 off-contract. Of course, if you're looking to get on contract, that up-front price won't apply. You can snag the G 300 for free on a two-year £15.50/month contract. That plan nets you 100 minutes, 500 texts but just 250MB of data, which means you probably won't be streaming any video or music outside of WiFi, but it should do just fine for email and Twitter.
