T-Mobile boasts budget smartphone for less than £100

Viva la city

Mobile application security vulnerability report

T-Mobile officially unveiled a fresh self-branded blower this morning, putting Android smartphones in pockets for under £100.

The T-Mobile Vivacity rocks up with Android 2.3 Gingerbread, a 3.5in capacitive display, Wi-Fi, Bluetooth, a 5Mp camera and an iPhone-esque - silver band around the sides, I ask you - design.

T-Mobile Vivacity

There's a mere 512MB of built-in storage, although the Vivacity supports Micro SD cards of up to 32GB capacity too.

Battery life is on the low side, though, with a rated talk time of four hours, but for that price it's hard to complain too much.

The T-Mobile Vivacity is available now, free on £10 per month contracts or £99 on Pay As You Go. ®
