T-Mobile has announced its first fully branded budget Android phone, the T-Mobile Vivacity, set to hit store shelves imminently.
The rather slick looking handset, which looks like a suspicious blend of an iPhone 4 and a Samsung Galaxy S2, rocks the 2.3 – aka Gingerbread – iteration of Android out of the box.
Sporting similar specs as the huge-selling San Francisco kit from fellow Everything Everywhere carrier Orange, the Vivacity is home to a five-megapixel camera, 3G+/HDSPA connectivity, Wi-Fi, Bluetooth and a microSD slot that supports up to 32GB of expandable storage.
Paul Jevons, Director of Products and Devices, Everything Everywhere said: "The T-Mobile Vivacity gives you everything you want from a smartphone.
“It offers the latest Android software, a large, high resolution touchscreen display and a stunning design - perfect for anyone looking for premium performance and great value for money.”
The T-Mobile Vivacity will go head to head with Orange’s recently announced San Francisco II in the cheapie Android kit stakes, which just landed this week.
It will be free for £10 a month on a 24-month plan or for £99 on Pay As You Go. No release date has been given yet, but customers can register their interest online to be notified as soon as it’s in stock.
