Orange plans to release a number of Android phones

Orange has announced it is releasing a new device called the San Francisco, which some people might feel is attractive enough to warrant selling an old mobile phone for.

The handset is the first of a series of Orange-branded models designed to offer consumers an affordable way of owning an Android-powered phone.

It will cost just £99 to buy - some of which could be raised by selling used phones for cash.

Phil Roberson, director of devices at Orange, says: "Combining its great functionality with our pay-as-you-go price plans, [the San Francisco] really does offer users tremendous value for money."

People who splash out on the new mobile will be able to take their pick from a range of thousands of apps that have been made available on the phone.

Orange recently announced it was linking up with Nokia to offers customers all of the content from the Finnish brand's Ovi Store.

Julie Snape, head of marketing at Envirofone, says: "If you’d always been put off buying a smartphone because of the price, you may be tempted now. If you want to upgrade, you could trade-in your old handset for cash – you could even make the £99 you need to by the San Francisco!"
