Orange has gone all Golden Gate Bridge again, announcing the successor to its own-brand Android blower, the San Francisco.

The Orange San Francisco II, which features a 3.5in capacitive touchscreen display, runs on a faster, 800MHz processor with Android 2.3 Gingerbread. Memory is also up, to 512MB, which can be expanded to 16GB using Micro SD cards.

Available towards the end of the month, the Orange San Francisco II will slot in at its predecessors price point - £99 on PAYG and free on contracts costing £10.50 a month. ®
