and Huawei IDEOS X6.

Got it for around $420 open line (No Contract). Comes with a free 4GB Micro SD, a Bluetooth headset and best of all..... an Android doll (LOL). Loving the phone so far though some little issues:

* ramdom restarts.
* The lower part of the unit gets hot when charging (while some users say that they experience it when playing 3D games). This causes the soft keys under the screen to be unresponsive, specifically the back and search buttons.
* GPS takes some time before it can lock with the satellites (compared to my Galaxy Spica)

The issues I mentioned does not happen frequently so its still a good smartphone for me.
Thanks!! That does appear to be the X6 under different brand names. Appreciate your reviews and youtube links.

It is looking like here in the U.S. the X6 is headed to T-Mobile. Sad news for those of us who currently are using phones like the Huawei Ascend and looking to upgrade to another Huawei phone.
