There’s a new budget phone in town and it’s ready to throw some data, or is it? The new Android 2.1 Eclair based OT-980 San Francisco from Orange UK is pay-as-you-go on their “Dolphin” plan. For a £10 pay-as-you-go reload you get 300 free texts, access to the free popular Orange Wednesday’s offer and free internet. Exactly how free is this internet you ask? Well, the internet is capped at 100 MB per month and if you need extra it will run you £2 per day for another 25 MB. As anyone knows that has used a smartphone before, that data will not last long at all. You could easily spend amount of data in a day or two. If you can get past that limitation, then this £99 fully capable budget phone might just be the proper one for you.
The OT-980 sports a 600 MHz processor with 150 MB Internal Memory and comes bundled with a 2 GB memory card. Now if that’s not enough for you, then you can always upgrade to as high as a 32 GB card. This phone is equipped with a 3.2 megapixel camera, 3.5″ (800 x 480) capacitive touchscreen and a FM Radio to keep you going through your busy day. Functionality wise this low cost phone has all the bells and whistles, including 3G+, Wifi, Bluetooth 2.1+EDR and GPS. Talk time clocks in at 4 hours with the standby lasting for 9 days. Pretty impressive for such an affordable phone, isn’t it? We thought so too.
