Okay, I appreciate this may be a non starter given the penchant for Orange SF on here [hell I bought it after reading about it on here], but this may be an alternative to other 'budget' Android handsets.
It's the above price for Orange, o2 and TMobile networks...£99.99 + £10 TU for Vodafone.
The Samsung Europa is a sleek little Android smartphone that gives you access to over 70,000 apps, most of them free! Europa would be a great first smartphone to get started with, as it’s so easy to use and fun to play with. There’s every mobile feature you could ever need, including 3G internet, email, instant messenger, a built-in Facebook™ app and Google Maps™ route planning services. Unlike some other affordable smartphones, Samsung Europa also comes with Android 2.1 right out of the box, so you can take advantage of tons of powerful Android features, and with the Samsung Social Hub pre-installed it’s never been easier to stay close to your contacts.
