[Portland-based Consumer Cellular announces availability of the Huawei 8652 smartphone priced at $100.]

Portland, OR -- Consumer Cellular (, the number one rated cellphone service and exclusive wireless provider for AARP members, introduces the Huawei 8652, a sleek and powerful smartphone that keeps consumers connected without breaking the bank. Powered by Android 2.3, the Huawei 8652 offers a large 3.5-inch full touch screen for watching streamed media content, surfing the Web, downloading apps and playing games. Priced at just $100, the Huawei 8652 offers more robust capabilities than a feature phone but at a lower price point than most any other smartphone.

“Smartphone sales have quickly outpaced feature phones, but they can come with hefty price tags that make it difficult for people who don’t want to spend a lot on a phone to keep up with changing technology,” said Consumer Cellular CEO John Marick. “With the Huawei 8652, we’re offering a cost-effective option perfect for those who want to do more than call or text, but don’t want to be overwhelmed by the price of a fully loaded smartphone.”

Smartphone usage among casual users is on the uptick as the phones become more prevalent in the market. Analysts with leading research firms Strategy Analytics and IDC predict that by 2015 or 2016, 90 percent of mobile users will own a smartphone.

“Many of our customers have told us they are eager to purchase a smartphone but are hesitant because of the cost, and – with other carriers – the long-term commitment that can come with it,” said Marick. “This gives our customers an affordable option to pair with one of our plans, and they can change their plan at any time, without penalty, to match their usage.”

At $100, the Huawei 8652 brings smartphone technology to budget-conscious consumers, offering a wide range of popular features:

3.5-inch touch screen for watching streamed content, surfing the Web or playing games

Access to thousands of Android™ apps

600 Mhz processor

Text messaging

Mobile e-mail

Bluetooth® wireless connectivity

3.2MP focus-free camera and video recorder

GPS navigation

MP3 music player

Preloaded subscribers-only app “My Consumer Cellular,” which allows users to quickly access billing and account information, usage stats and scan-capable AARP information for member benefits
