If you’re in the market for a high quality mid-range handset then Sony’s Xperia SP could be just what you’re looking for. Even better still you won’t have to wait to get your hands on…
The mobile phone carrier Orange are set to release their very own Android based device for the grand sum of €1.00. Built by Foxconn on behalf of the Orange network, the device is currently set for a European only release. Naturally, in order to qualify for this low price you will have to be on a particular contract, but this doesn’t detract from the fact that it is still very, very affordable.
Your €1.00 will get you a 3.2″ screen providing a 480px x 320px resolution. You even get Wi-Fi 802.11b/g and Bluetooth 2.0 + EDR. The ‘Boston’ will be pretty snappy too, offering a Qualcomm 600MHz processor and 256MB RAM which will help power the 5-megapixel camera and GPS functionality. The only bad news is that this device will initially ship with Android 1.6 (helping to keep Android ‘fragmented‘), but it is thought that there will be updates in the pipeline.
