Pay-as-you-go users get a real treat with the Orange San Francisco, a smartphone designed specifically for the budget end of the market. At only £99 the San Francisco represents great value and will make a great Christmas gift or provide the latest features to those who are looking to update their handset.
The San Francisco proudly boasts Android v2.1, the popular operating system that allows users to access the Android Marketplace where new applications, games and other content can be downloaded to expand the phones functionality. 3G HSDPA and Wi-Fi are also onboard to ensure a speedy experience when browsing the Internet and the accelerometer will rotate the display for viewing Web pages in either landscape or portrait views.
Orange has added a little colour of their own with Orange Maps that work in conjunction with the built-in GPS, Orange Messenger by Windows Live and access to the Orange App Store. Other useful features include wireless Bluetooth and a 3-megapixel camera that can use the included 2GB-microSD card for storage.
If you love the Orange network then the San Francisco is a great choice for those looking for a great touchscreen smartphone that doesn’t cost the earth.
