Dirt cheap $70 Huh what? phone at Wind Mobile

Huawei U1250 bargain phone from Wind Mobile

It’s one of those things that becomes a double-edged sword. On the one hand, Wind Mobile doesn’t want to lock you down to a lengthy contract. On the other hand, this means that they don’t offer hardware subsidies. So, what do you do?

You sell a cheapass phone, of course! If you want to get into the Wind Mobile action and don’t want to break the bank, you might want the Huawei U1250. Unlike the $450 they want for the BlackBerry Bold 9700, the Huawei U1250 is just $70. Not surprisingly, this cheaper phone is on the more entry-level end of the spectrum. There’s no QWERTY keyboard or touchscreen display. There is no app store or accelerometer. It is just seventy bucks, after all. What do you expect?  It almost looks like an old Nokia design that never saw the light of day.

What you do get with the U1250 is a 2-inch QVGA display, 2-megapixel camera, 3.5mm audio jack, microSD slot, dedicated music buttons, and a relatively slim profile. It’s not exciting, but it’ll suit the no-frills consumer that just needs a phone to be a phone.
