As Vodafone gears up to unveil the second so-called Google phone, rival network T-Mobile is apparently planning to offer the third Android handset later this year.
According to a report from Mobile News, which quotes a spokesman for Huawei who confirms the news, the handset will hit the UK mobile phone market during the third quarter and will be called the G3.
The Huawei phone was initially unveiled at the trade expo the Mobile World Congress in Barcelona during February, where it garnered much press attention for its compact dimensions and powerful array of functions.
Features of the G3 phone include a five megapixel camera, 3G support, a large touchscreen, a 3.55 mm audio jack and Wi-Fi and Bluetooth connectivity.
T-Mobile was the first UK network to offer a phone using Google’s Android operating system when it launched the G1 phone late last year.
Meanwhile, Vodafone’s Android offering, the HTC Magic, is set for release in early May, having originally been earmarked to hit stores this month.
