Network provider T-Mobile has rolled out an Android update that brings version 2.1 of the platform to owners of its own-brand Pulse smartphone.
The T-Mobile Pulse has been on the market for a while and was one of the first Android smartphones to be aimed at the pay as you go market, with its sub-£200 price and appealing list of features.
Compared to the high end Android mobiles of today it is not particularly impressive, but with Wi-Fi, GPS and a 3.5-inch screen it is certainly competitive.
Pulse owners in Hungary had already received version 2.1 of Android earlier in the year, so it was always assumed that UK customers would be getting the same update, although most of the media have been more concerned with the arrival of Android 2.1 on the HTC Hero.
With the T-Mobile Pulse now sporting Android 2.1 and Android 2.2 delayed on the more expensive smartphones, it could enjoy a resurgence in popularity, particularly amongst those who are looking for a low cost way to jump on the Android bandwagon.
