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.

Then there's a 5Mp camera as well as a slightly improved battery life of four-and-half hours' talk time. Hardly anything to call home about.

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. ®
