Huawei continues its American push, this time landing the Mercury on budget regional carrier Cricket. The 4-inch Gingerbread smartphone will run a single-core 1.4GHz processor on a 4-inch screen, and the impressive addition of an 8 megapixel camera. Cricket customers can pick up a no-contract Mercury now for just $249.99.
I'm honored today to confirm Huawei is one of the first to bring an Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich update to one of their smartphones. The Huawei Honor is just starting to hit the market in parts of Asia and Huawei is already offering the ICS update available for download right from their website -- for those who dare.
