Orange UK gets San Francisco II exclusively

updated 11:50 am EST, Fri November 18, 2011

Orange UK ships San Francisco II later this month

UK wireless provider Orange has revealed plans to launch the San Francisco II, a successor to its previous budget Android smartphone. It replaces last year's San Francisco and will be available on pay-as-you-go or monthly plans. It moves to an 800MHz processor along with 512MB of RAM, a five-megapixel camera, and Android 2.3.

A 3.5-inch, 800x480 touchscreen serves as the framework, and the handset gets the Orange-specific HD Voice feature for clear conversations along with Signal Boost for better reception when indoors. Assisted GPS, an MP3 player and a built-in FM radio are integrated as well.

Orange preloads its mail, contacts backup and coupon apps on the phone.
The San Francisco II will cost 99 (about $157) on pay-as-you-go plans and free with two-year contracts on a minimum 10.50 (nearly $17) per month plan. It ships in late November.
