U.S. Cellular and Huawei Debut New Ascend Y Budget-Friendly Smartphone

Huawei Ascend YU.S. Cellular, which isn’t the most well known wireless provider in the country, has just announced the launch of the Ascend Y in cooperation with Huawei, a leading global information and communications technology solutions provider.

The Huawei Ascend Y smartphone was designed to make it easier than ever to stay connected with your contacts. The device is perfect for users who need a multi-functional, easy-to-use device and comes equipped with standard Android features, including the Android 2.3 Gingerbread operating system, Google Maps, Navigation, Gmail, YouTube and SWYPE text input.

In addition to that, the Huawei  Ascend Y also comes with a 3.5″ screen with a resolution of 480 x 320 and a 3.2 megapixel rear-facing camera. DTS Envelo technology is also included, adding virtual surround sound for an enhanced audio experience.

According to Executive Vice President of Sales with Huawei Device USA Michael Chuang, “The Huawei Ascend Y is perfect for the social and always connected consumer. The feature-rich device provides more than 4.8 hours of talk time and 12.7 days of standby time which is perfect for multitasking. The Huawei Ascend Y builds on the success of the Ascend range of smartphones and delivers on Huawei’s commitment to make technology acessible for more people globally.” The new Huawei Ascend Y is currently available to all U.S. Cellular customers for $29.99 with a new 2-year agreement.

Obviously, this is your budget smartphone that is mostly geared towards older smartphone users and people who want some of the functionality of a smartphone but don’t necessarily need all the bells and whistles. The outdated operating system won’t mean much to average users, nor will the below-average screen size and resolution. However, if you are looking for a new, top tier smartphone, this one definitely isn’t it.
