UPDATE #2: Quidco says "Free internet for a year when you top up £10 on the San Diego & save £20 on the handset + cashback increased to an exclusive £45 at Orange Pay As You Go "
This my first HotUKDeal but I'm going to dispense with the normal copy & paste of marketing fluff.
If you're reading this then you already know about the Orange San Diego phone. Previously only available for £199.99 + £10 top-up (or free on a £15.50 contract)
Just noticed this morning that Orange has dropped this to £179.99 on PAYG.
For anyone who hasn't read the review yet, I have to disclose that:
a) There is still no SIM-unlock available for this handset, so you can only use Orange or T-Mobile micro SIMs
b) There is still no root hack available, so anyone hoping to run custom ROMs etc should steer clear.
For everyone else, this is an awesome mid-priced phone with high-end specifications. The Intel CPU is lightning fast and the high-resolution LCD display is gorgeous. It is thin and light, and the battery lasts ages.
