Vodafone has added a new budget blower to its Android range, in the shape of the Smart 2.
Exclusive to the carrier and priced £70, the Smart 2 packs Android 2.3 (aka Gingerbread) out of the box and a 3.2-inch screen with 320 x 480 resolution. All pretty standard at this price point, no?
Elsewhere, it’s got an 800MHz processor, a 3.2 megapixel camera with LED flash. Internal storage is a less impressive 150MB. But with microSD card support present and correct and a 2MB card supplied in the package, that’s not too of a downer.
Voda has unveiled the Smart 2 just days after Orange debuted its own cheap phone contender, the San Diego.
Also powered by Android 2.3, the San Diego is almost three times the price, but for that outlay you’ll be getting a 4.3-inch display, an eight megapixel camera with burst capture mode and 16GB of on board memory.
Sweetening the package further is that Orange has promised an update to Android Ice Cream Sandwich soon, so you won’t have to live with the increasingly creaky Gingerbead iteration for long.
