Cricket Wireless is expected to soon carry another Android-powered Huawei handset, or says a source close to PhoneArena. Featuring a portrait QWERTY keyboard below a 3.2-inch display, the smartphone will run on Android 2.3 Gingerbread.

The full details remain unclear, but an official user manual found online advises there is a rear camera and microSD expansion. Called the Ascend Q, the handset has already been spotted in the real world and may be announced in the short term.

Cricket currently offers a couple of Huawei models (Ascend II, Mercury ) in select markets but it's still difficult to forecast pricing. Also unknown at this time is whether this will be a Muve Music offering; ,however there's nary a mention of the service in the user manual. Considering the other two smartphones (the ZTE Score and the Samsung Vitality ) on the Cricket roster are priced under $100, I would imagine that this, too, will be budget friendly.
