Orange launches ‘cheapest touch-screen in the UK’
Orange has launched the cheapest touch-screen phone available in the UK, for less than £50 on prepay.
Orange claims the ZTE ‘Vegas’ is the smallest, lightest and cheapest touch-screen mobile available in the UK. It is priced at £48.50 for pay-as-you-go customers. The handset is available in black and is exclusive to Orange in pink.
The phone has a one-touch interface designed exclusively for Orange and a 1.3-megapixel camera. It also offers MP3 and media player capability and a built-in FM radio for music fans.
Customers on Orange pay-as-you-go Dolphin will get 300 free texts plus free access to Bebo, Facebook and MySpace with a £10 top-up.
Orange UK director of devices Francois Mahieu said: ‘The Vegas is the perfect handset for customers who wish to have the touch-screen experience without breaking the bank. It offers good functionality with a touch-screen, at a cheap and affordable price.’
The Vegas comes with an in-built memory of 128MB and a microSD card slot that supports a data capacity of up to 4GB. It is also available to pay monthly customers.
