Network provider Orange is going to release its own smartphone based on the Android operating system at a low price point.
At the moment the mobile is going by the name of Project JAL, although presumably this will be replaced with a snappier title before it hits the shops. The phone will follow in the footsteps of the entry level T-Mobile Pulse Mini and [Vodafone 845].
A three megapixel camera and a touchscreen interface will be coupled with version 2.1 of the Android operating system, constituting the main features of Project JAL's design, according to Tech Radar.
Various Orange services will be accessible from the device via preinstalled software and via high speed network connectivity. It is destined for the UK market at some point in the near future, although no official date has been given.
Both pay as you go and pay monthly deals will be sold in tandem with the Project JAL smartphone and it could cost as little as £100, although an upper limit of £150 has been set at the moment.
