Orange outs budget Android 2.1 handset

San Francisco first of a series

5 things you didn’t know about cloud backup

Orange has launched what it says will be the "first in a series" of low-cost Android smartphones.

Orange San Francisco

Dubbed San Francisco, the £99 pay-as-you-go handset runs Android 2.1 and packs in a 3Mp camera, GPS, Wi-Fi, an FM radio and HSDPA 3G connectivity.

You don't get much on-board storage for your money - just 150MB - but you do get a 2GB Micro SD card in the box.

Orange San Francisco

Orange claimed the San Fran can provide up to four hours of talk time, or run for nine days in stand-by mode.

The 116 x 57 x 12mm, 130g smartphone goes on sale later this week. ®
