I wonder what the average joe is going to think when he sees this Huawei for $160 and then the older Huawei for $90.. they nearly look identical, and that kind of shopper won't really know what advantage android will give them. I dunno, seems like a weird device to place in the lineup. a nice mid-level android phone around 300 mark would be nice.

Wind is trying to compete with the other carriers offering premium phones for under $200. As much as an elite group of wireless users [us lol] might advise otherwise, the vast majority of North Americans are not troubled (or aware of) the connection between long-term contracts and subsidized phones; all they know is the amount they have to lay out on activation day. If all Wind (or Mobilicity) had to offer was $400-$600 phones, traffic in the stores would be very weak. But as in all things, the buyer gets what s/he pays for.

Word is beginning to leak that the Motorola I mentioned earlier is likely the XT720. This would be a very nice (if expensive) high-end Android phone to add to their selection.

Edit: The XT720 has apparently begun to show up in their inventory system.
