T-Mobile Pulse is first PAYG Android phone

Android has been spreading its wings this year with the HTC Hero and incoming Samsung i7500. And now it’s got its first PAYG handse courtesy of

Due out in October for a tempting £180, it sports a more curvy design than the T-Mobile G1, but much the same specs. Like the first Android phone, it has a 3.2in HVGA display, 3.2MP camera with autofocus (but no flash) and a microSD slot.

There’s an extra helping of internal storage with 2GB onboard, and connectivity is decent with HSDPA, Wi-Fi and GPS. In typical Android style, you also get six homescreens to fill with your choice of widgets.
