Orange UK officially pull the wraps off the San Diego, the UK's first Intel powered Android smartphone

We're at a press event in London this morning, where Orange UK have shown off the San Diego, the first Intel powered device to launch in the UK and in Europe. The device will be launching next week on June 6. On pay-as-you-go the San Diego will cost a very 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. 

We'll be going hands on with the device later on and really getting to know it, so stick around.
