T-Mobile Netherlands to launch Android-powered Pulse October 12


T-Mobile’s got a bit of a thing for Android, and they’re not afraid to show it to the world. Since the fledgling OS debuted on its G1 almost exactly a year ago (Sept. 23, 2008), T-Mobile has launched more Android handsets than all of the other carriers combined – and they’re about to add one more.

It looks like T-Mobile is set to launch (warning: Dutch ahead) their next ‘Droid, the Pulse, on October 12…in the Netherlands. This “new” Android device, manufactured by Huawei, shares the same name (and most of the same hardware) as the pay-as-you-go UK version, but appears to have received a dual-camera upgrade, one for “regular use” (5MP v. UK’s 3.2MP) and one for video calling.
