How does T-Mobile follow up its most powerful Android smartphone to date? With a budget-friendly 3G handset right out of 2009, of course!

According to details passed to TmoNews, the carrier is on the verge of announcing the T-Mobile Prism 3G for Sunday.

Aimed squarely at first-time smartphone buyers, the Prism is expected to run Android 2.3 Gingerbread and feature a 600MHz processor. Additional specs include a 3.5-inch (480x320) display, a 3.2-megapixel camera, 2GB RAM, and 512MB ROM. As the name suggests, the Huawei-manufactured Prism 3G works on T-Mobile's 3G network. Incidentally, Nokia made a Prism a few years back, but it never made it to a U.S. carrier.

The leaked information indicates that the smartphone will initially be available in Best Buy on May 6, expanding to Wal-Mart later in the week. Pricing for the handset has yet to surface, but I'd hope to see $50 or less with contract.
