Cricket Launches Gingerbread-Powered Huawei Ascend II

Remember the Huawei Ascend? It launched on Cricket Wireless in October of last year, along with a few other regional carriers. Well, it looks like Huawei has put the finishing touches on the successor to the Ascend, which they’re calling, creatively enough, the Ascend II. It’s packing a 3.5-inch HVGA display, a measly 600MHz processor, Gingerbread (Android 2.3), 5MP camera, and the usual WiFi, 3G connectivity, and a micro SD card slot.

Remember the Huawei Ascend? It launched on Cricket Wireless in October of last year, along with a few other regional carriers. Well, it looks like Huawei has put the finishing touches on the successor to the Ascend, which they’re calling, creatively enough, the Ascend II. It’s packing a 3.5-inch HVGA display, a measly 600MHz processor, Gingerbread (Android 2.3), 5MP camera, and the usual WiFi, 3G connectivity, and a micro SD card slot.

As you can see from the specs, the Ascend II follows its predecessor in the ranks of low- to mid-range Android devices. Cricket is now carrying the device, with a price tag of $179.99. Obviously the Ascend II isn’t going to dazzle anyone, but it’s nice to see that Huawei is launching devices with Gingerbread. That’s more than we can say for a certain manufacturer.

So, are any of our readers on Cricket Wireless? Planning to pick up the Ascend II? Sound off in the comments below or on our Facebook Wall! The full press release can also be found below.
