UK MOBILE NETWORK Vodafone has announced its budget Android powered Smart II handset, which is available now for just £70.
Aimed at those after a taste of Android without breaking the bank, the cheap and cheerful Vodafone Smart II comes running Google's now dated Android 2.3 Gingerbread operating system and has a mediocre 800MHz single-core processor with 150MB of RAM. This means that the Smart II won't support high end apps, but Vodafone is talking up the fact that Gmail, Facebook and Youtube apps are onboard.
Available in white and dark grey models, the compact 12.35mm thick smartphone also features a 3.15MP rear camera with LED flash and VGA video recording capability, an FM radio, HSDPA and WiFi connectivity and a 2GB microSD storage card included in the box.
The Vodafone Smart II is available to buy now from the mobile network's online store, costing £70 on pay as you go. Punters need to top up at least a fiver, which will also get them a voucher code to use at Blockbuster and Thorntons. µ
