Consumer Cellular today announced the addition of the Huawei 8652 to its lineup of Android smartphones. The 8652, which is sold by AT&T as the Fusion, runs Android 2.3 Gingerbread, has a 3.5-inch display with 320 x 480 pixels, and is powered by a 600MHz processor. It includes a 3.2-megapixel camera with video capture; microSD support up to 32GB; and 3G, Bluetooth 2.1, and Wi-Fi/GPS. The Fusion sells for $100 and does not require a contract.
