As an Android smartphone, the Huawei Impulse 4G ships with version 2.2 of the software a.k.a. Froyo as its operating system. It weighs 125 grams, features a 3.8-inch screen with motion and proximity sensors underneath, offers Bluetooth and Wi-Fi wireless capabilities, expandable memory up to 32GB, a built-in 5MP camera, and a built-in FM radio. A 4GB microSD card is included with the Huawei Impulse 4G to get you started. It also offers up to 10 days of standby time on a single full charge.

Available exclusively in the US from AT&T, the Impluse ships with a rather measly 512MB of internal storage but comes with a 4GB microSD card in the box, a smart move on Huawei's considering the number of people who run into memory capacity issues.

While not for the power user, the Impulse looks to be a pretty solid phone that will work for most budgets. In other words, what it lacks, it makes up for in savings.
