T-Mobile has become the latest mobile phone manufacturer to unveil a slimmed down version of one of its most popular handsets, in the shape of the T-Mobile Pulse Mini.
Showcased at the Mobile World Conference yesterday, the Pulse Mini is being aimed at pay as you go customers who might otherwise be priced out of Android phones.
In technical terms the Pulse Mini does not seem an obvious underdog: it has a 2.8 inch touchscreen, a 3.2 megapixel camera and a universal headphone jack to top it all off. The sole giveaway that this is a budget blower is its fairly chunky design.
What's more, while you might assume that given its low price the Pulse Mini will be stuck with Android 1.6, in fact it will come with full support for Android 2.1.
T-Mobile will begin offering its customers the Pulse Mini from April this year at around £99.
The carrier also disclosed that it will be stocking the Samsung Wave when it arrives in Europe. The Wave will be the flagship smartphone to feature Samsung's own Bada operating system.
