Huawei M660 leaks with hardware keyboard headed to Cricket

June 15, 2012

Huawei has another handset that is set to hit the airwaves shortly. The odd thing here is the backwards direction it is taking. The Huawei M660 is sporting a BlackBerry style portrait hardware keyboard and appears to be running Android 2.3.6 Gingerbread. Users on Cricket Wireless might want to stay tuned.

What a powerhouse smartphone right? Rocking a small 3.2-inch 480x320 resolution display, Android 2.3 Gingerbread and a neat 4-row QWERTY hardware keyboard. These devices are starting to become somewhat of a novelty but for those that still want a hardware keyboard, this looks to be a good option on Cricket.

A few photos of the handset were leaked to PhoneArena but hardly confirms the specs. We are seeing a camera on the back that will probably be a 3 megapixel shooter. This lower-end device is headed for Cricket Wireless, and maybe Metro PCS but the details are still light. It isn't the Galaxy S III but someone looking for a contract free, pay-as-you-go device this could be a good budget device. We'll report back if we find out more.
