Orange own-brand Android phones incoming

It looks like Orange is really pushing to make Android mass market in 2010, aided by what currently goes by the name Project JAL.

According to TechRadar, Orange is currently working on the own-brand device, which is said to be in the same vein as the Vodafone 845 and T-Mobile Pulse Mini. That's a slim 'tablet-style device' with a 3-megapixel camera that will be running Android 2.1.

It will also feature Orange's own services, including maps and messaging, with the device also offering Wi-Fi, Bluetooth and GPS connectivity. All the basics (and more) for not a lot of cash. At least, that's what's expected.

A price point of between £100-£150 is being rumoured right now, with the phone likely to be offered on both contract and pay as you go deals. Orange has yet to comment, but with so much information out there, it looks to have a significant basis of truth. Or in other words, look out for the official announcement very soon.
