I would be open to an Intel powered phone if the reviews came back favorable, but not one running Gingerbread. Given ICS has been available for more than 6 months, shipping a new phone with GB is inexcusable.

But still, it is a 4" phone.

It would be a perfect size if this were still 2009.

They are trying to fight last year's war.

well now for all the people who complain about the screen size... here you go.

In the age of ICS why the hell are phones still comming out with Gingerbread?

adzrules says:

Absolutely repulsive phone from one of the worst carriers in the UK.

Did they deliberately make Gingerbread look like FroYo?

See the hands on video, the crappy press shot is crappy :)

I think Orange have some of the best deals on contracts in the UK, especially through carphone warehouse owned mobiles. co .uk , but I don't see the obsession of Orange to go and absolutely destroy Androids look and make a phone that could be a good value offering and turn it into a hideous bloatware infested piece of OS that looks like literal vomit.

I agree that this is a BIG error from Intel. They needed a pure ICS unbranded device initially so we could see what it was REALLY able to do, not a GB hindered, carrier bloatware infected nightmare like this.

Not enough space under the screen [/sarcasm]

That phone is ugly, so basic looking and running gb outdated os pleeeaze! sad thing is, i know intel could do better than that. Way to enter the android smartphone world with a bang intel (sarcasm).

"OS: Android 2.3 (Gingerbread)" - Insta-fail! The rest of the specs are pretty basic as well.

Who cares about GB? You can always update the software. Did you see the BT 2.1 and the 1024X600 display? Those are the real problems here.

Care to elaborate? Screen quality is remarkably good considering the price point

Photoshop fail. The phone in this photo clearly sports the Froyo status bar. So what, it's running FroyoBread?

Remember people, this is a first-gen device from Intel on a mobile platform. I suspect second-gen will have dual-core, better screen resolution, and an updated OS.

Don't forget this thing holds its own against last year's dual-core models, running on only a single core cpu.
