Network operator Orange UK has announced off the San Diego (formerly known as the Santa Clara), the first Intel powered device to launch in the UK and in Europe. The device will be launches on June 6. On pay-as-you-go the San Diego costs a reasonable £199.99, as well as on contract for free from £15.50 per month.
Orange have traditionally marketed their own-brand smartphones towards the lower end of the market, but the San Diego could well be snapped up by more feature hungry consumers.
Inside there's a 1.6GHz Intel Atom chip, 1GB of RAM, an 8MP camera with 1080p video recording and HDMI out. The San Diego is powered by Android 2.3 Gingerbread, with Orange's custom UI.
