Price of Cheapest Orange San Francisco Smartphone Price Falls To £89

We fell under the spell of the Orange San Francisco smartphone and managed to grab the handset for as little as £98.99 including delivery from an online shop (ed : we will be publishing a full review of the phone very shortly).

Prepaywizard (opens in new tab) sells it for £109.99 including a £10 Orange topup. However enter the code sub613 and you get a 10 per cent discount which is basically equivalent to getting the voucher for free, bringing the price of the San Francisco to £98.99 (or £88.99 + £10).

This is £11 cheaper than at Orange and £1 cheaper than at Orange (where you can pick the white version of the phone which will be released towards the end of this month).

The phone packs an incredible amount of technology for the price; it comes with a Qualcommm MSM7227 processor clocked at 600MHz, 512MB RAM, a 3.2-megapixel camera with AF, Wi-Fi, Bluetooth, three sensors, Android Eclair OS 2.1 and an FM Radio.

The main attraction of the San Francisco (otherwise known as the ZTE Blade) though remains the 3.5-inch WVGA (800x480 pixels) OLED capacitive touchscreen. You will get a number of Orange services including its Sat nav and a range of other Android-based applications.
