Budget QWERTY smartphone wants to do your social networking
It hasn't quite warranted a big launch, but if affordability and social networking are top of your list of requirements, the Orange Hollywood could be for you.
Not that we know how cheap it will be, we're just making an assumption based on its specification. Right now, the website doesn't give an exact figure, but we would guess it will be well under £100 when it does land, which will be 'soon'.
For that outlay, you get a handset with both a QWERTY and a touch-screen, but not Android. No, this isn't even a budget Android phone. That touch-screen is around 2.4 inches in size and can access your social network feeds, including Twitter and Facebook. Should you want to send out a quick update, that QWERTY keyboard should be worth its weight in gold.
The Hollywood also packs a 3.2-megapixel camera, Wi-Fi and EDGE connectivity and a battery life of around 210 minutes. When we hear confirmation of that date and price, we'll let you know.
