Orange has added a low-cost Android smartphone to its line-up in the shape of a £99 handset called San Francisco, available on pay-as-you-go.
On sale this week from Orange stores, telesales and Orange's web site, the San Francisco runs Android 2.1 and has all the usual smartphone features including 3G, Wi-Fi, GPS and Bluetooth.
Other features include Orange Maps for navigation, Orange Messenger by Windows Live, the Orange App Store, an MP3 player and a built-in FM radio.
Orange claimed that the new device provides access to great Android technology while offering excellent value for money.
"The San Francisco is the first in a series of affordable Android devices we have planned for Orange. Combining great functionality with our pay-as-you-go price plans really does offer tremendous value for money," said Phil Roberson, director of devices at Orange UK.
