Orange Boston Android phone hitting selves from April 16 for €1
Orange has come out with its own branded Android device, but it looks like we have with us Gigabyte GSmart/Codfish, while some reports suggest Foxconn of Taiwan is the manufacturer, but we think its Gigabyte.
The carrier is preparing to release it in Spain, the UK, Poland and Romania from 16 April. The “Boston” touch-screen handset, which will not be offered in France initially, will sell for EUR 1(Virtually Free) with a subscription plan, as Orange pushes to accelerate the adoption of the mobile internet and puts its mobile apps into more users’ hands.
Produced in China, the Boston only costs EUR 120 to manufacture, half as much as most of its competitors, and the operating system is free. Talking about the specs, Boston comes with 3.2 inch touch screen, 5 MP cam with flash, 512 MB internal memory with sd card support, GPS, Bluetooth and WiFi.
