Orange's New Own-brand Android to Cost £119
Orange’s latest own-brand phone is the Huawei-made Orange Barcelona.
There are people who just don’t care about having the latest phone with the most current version of Android. For those people, a phone is a phone, and almost any phone will do, as long as it's more or less up to date. For these people, the Orange San Francisco, with Android 2.1, has been a pretty solid choice. Now, thanks to the success of the San Francisco, Orange is launching its second own-brand Android phone in the form of the Orange Barcelona.
Boasting Android 2.2, the device is manufactured by Huawei and boasts a small, 2.6-inch TFT touchscreen, which is complemented by a full, portrait QWERTY keyboard. The phone also packs a 3.2-megapixel camera, support for video capture, video calling, HD voice, 3G, and an FM radio.
Not much else about the Barcelona is known right now, with the most important detail -- when it will launch -- still absent. However, we do know how much the device will cost when it is launched. According to TechRadar, those interested in the Barcelona as a pay as you go device are looking at £119.99. If you’re willing to sign a contract amounting to at least £15 per month, you can get the phone for free.
