The latest budget handset fighting for a piece of the ever growing Android market hits the shelves today.
The T-Mobile Vivacity, running the Gingerbread OS, is being launched as a multimedia phone and sports a 3.5-inch WVGA TFT capacitive display, which is promising for a handset in this price bracket. It also packs a five-megapixel camera, with a microSD slot supporting up to 32GB for movies, music and other media.
Built by Chinese manufacturer ZTE, the Vivacity is well connected with GPS, Wi-Fi, Bluetooth and 3G but like fellow value Android phone, the Orange San Francisco, it's the price that could see this handset win. Exclusive to T-Mobile, the Vivacity is available free on a £10 per month contract or for just £99 on pay-as-you-go – putting it toe to toe with Orange's recently unveiled San Francisco II.
Watch out for our full reviews of both handsets next week to see which we'd choose.
