T-Mobile has just announced that it is going to introduce a very affordable smartphone running Google’s Android OS . The T-Mobile Comet will have an entry-level feature set, and it is set to launch on Wednesday.
The Comet is intended for phone users who are getting their first smartphone, and part of the allure is going to be price — this model will sell for just $10 with a two-year contract and $50 mail-in-rebate. Those who want to buy it without a contract will have to pay just under $200.
It is going to run Android OS 2.2 on a 528 MHz processor, and will come with a suite of communication and entertainment software, like a web browser, email app, and much more.
The Comet is going to support T-Mobile’s 3G network, plus it will have Wi-Fi b/g/n, Bluetooth and a GPS.
It will include a 3.2 megapixel camera and the Swype text-entry system.
This smartphone is going to be available in T-Mobile stores as well as Best Buy, Radio Shack and Target.
Part of a Trio
In addition to this entry-level model, T-Mobile is going to introduce two mid-range smartphones running the Android OS on November 3.
