Android for purists

The Huawei Ideos X5 is an Android 2.2 smartphone that has none of the graphical adornments that can complicate the Android interface or cause carrier update delays to a new operating system.

Camera

There's a 5-megapixel shooter on the Ideos X5, and it'll capture and play back video at 720p.
