Huawei's Impulse 4G is a budget smartphone for AT&T

Summary:For $30 on a two-year contract, Huawei's Impulse phone is a pretty affordable alternative to the other phones offered by AT&T.

With phones like the Droid Bionic running for $300 on contract, its hard not to feel as if the price of admission into the smartphone club is getting steeper and steeper.

Fortunately Chinese smartphone maker Huawei is trying to balance things out with the Impulse. Available via AT&T, the device will run for $30 on contract. That's a good deal considering that the phone comes equipped with a 5-megapixel camera, 3.8-inch touchscreen, and the ability to run on AT&T's 4G network. One problem? Running Android 2.2 (Froyo), the device is a bit dated.  But for $30, you may not mind.

The phone will be available September 18th.
