Smartphones might be the best thing to happen to us since the satnav but they're pretty pricey devices. As such, affordable lower-end options are becoming more popular. Last week Orange expanded upon its success with its own-brand Android, the San Francisco, with the San Francisco 2. However, it seems Orange isn't the only network with this ZTE-manufactured phone. Crave reports that sister-carrier T-Mobile is also going to be selling the phone, albeit under a different name.
The two phones sport slightly different designs, but they're identical under the hood. Both the San Francisco 2 and T-Mobile's Vivacity pack a 3.5-inch 800x480 TFT WVGA touchscreen display and a 5-megapixel camera, as well as an 800MHz ARM11 CPU; support for up to 32GB of storage; a small camera up front for video calling; WiFi; Bluetooth; and USB support. Most importantly the Vivacity has the same version of Android (Gingerbread) and the same PAYG £99 price tag.
