I have just spotted this phone for sale at a reasonable price of £79.95 plus £10 top up. Link is here http://www.phones4u....?ItemKey=564171
Should be unlocked seeing as it's the same price for each network.

Will pop in a shop and find out.

Out shopping today I Accidentally bought one...

I noticed from the other forum it's got a development community going already but.. Hey another cheap android for the collection...

Its running Android 2.3.5 so tricky to root, but I managed to build a kernel from source and create a ClockworkMod Recovery and use that to dump the rom... I'll be doing the usual soon

Oddly Huawei have turned off the option to be able to extract the kernel config from /proc/config.gz when its running....

The one I purchased from Taiwan came with Android 2.3.3 (plus some carrier crap).

I read from Taiwanese forums that the ROMs are being identical to U8650/Sonic due to the same hardware design, however nobody can confirm this as yet.

It would be good news since I heard there is unofficial CM7.2 is being ported to U8650 already.

By the way, our Ideos X3 jelly cases are available now. Posted Image

now £70 (£50 with suitable sim!, and an extra £!0 credit for free at xmas) amazing phone for the money, would be the dominant budget Android if more people knew about it imho.
