UK network T-Mobile has been named as the early favourite to secure exclusive rights to the forthcoming Android-powered handset from Huawei.
According to tmonews, a “trusted source” has informed them that the phone will arrive on the mobile phone network at some stage during the third quarter of 2009.
The site was unable to reveal much about the specifications of the mobile phone but claimed that it would feature a 3.5mm headphone jack, Wi-Fi connectivity, Cupcake and a five megapixel camera.
T-Mobile was the first UK operator to sell a phone using Google’s Android operating system when it signed an exclusive deal for the T-Mobile G1 last year.
The second so-called Googlephone to hit the UK will be the HTC Magic, which is now expected to appear on Vodafone in the first week of May.
Vodafone had originally been expected to begin selling the HTC Magic this month.
Samsung is also believed to be preparing an Android-powered phone, but details of which UK network will carry the handset have yet to be confirmed.
