Orange Vegas - the cheapest full touchscreen handset to date
Orange UK have just announced the cheapest full touchscreen handset, dubbed as the Orange Vegas, which is already available for purchase at the carrier points of sale across UK or online.
The price of only 48.50 GBP for pay-as-you-go customers is a hit below the belt for handsets like the highly popular LG KP501 Cookie, which costs at least twice as much.
Well, to be honest, Vegas ain't that cute as the Cookie but its price is low enough to make you say "Deal!". The Orange Vegas reminds of the HTC Touch Viva but it doesn't nearly have the same brains or goodies under the hood.
Orange Vegas comes in pink or black and offers a 2.4" TFT touchscreen and UI that is designed exclusively for Orange. Along comes the 1.3 megapixel snapper capable of taking images and videos and the music player followed by the microSD card slot ready to host cards with up to 4 GB of memory. Also aboard is a built-in FM radio and Bluetooth.
Another nice touch is the free access to services like Bebo, Facebook and MySpace.
Now available only in the UK, the Orange Vega is expected to hit other Orange markets as well.

Well, you either wait for it to lock, or you change the time it takes to lock by: Go to menu and then settings. Then to Phone settings and finally to auto keypad lock now you can change the time it takes to lock!
