Here's an odd duck. The T-Mobile Pulse Mini is an Android 2.1 smartphone, built to cater to the budget market. Despite holding the latest update to the OS, the Pulse Mini is only set to cost £100. Phandroid knows why; they cut corners. This phone has no GPS.

If this little phone can't at least handle A-GPS, I'm not entirely sure what the use of it is. All of the location-based apps would be completely useless otherwise. Is this phone not going to launch with Google Nav? What on earth is T-Mobile playing at? The 2.8” screen and need for a stylus are forgiveable. This might not be.
