GETGet dealVisit site and get deal
Just came across this in my visit to Edinburgh city centre. The orange store had discounted it from £149 to £99. The member of staff was also willing to use my phone fund on it.
I think it also comes with 5 extra cases/covers but I can't remember.
The first time I have posted a deal so sorry if I have done anything wrong.
I understand the orange san francisco is also available at a similar price point but this would be a good alternative for those who would want a qwerty keypad, unique styling and possible a better build as the san francisco suffers from quite a few faults.

Thanks.

Not any more, the company has been totally re-organised in last few months and doing very well with andriod phones, good reviews at last weeks CES (but are still mainly aiming at US market and its technically backward comms companies). Lets hope they have taken on the past lack of updates

BTW this phone seems a bit girly.

poor reviews on revoo.... people talking about loads of different isues there

This is a really cool looking phone for the price. I was looking into it before I got my desire because of how quirky and neat it looks. It's also running on 2.1 with pinch to zoom, multitouch etc.. really nice little handset for kids who wouldn't be seen dead with the aesthetically unpleasing San Francisco. Heat from me

i was nearly convinced to buy one after watching youtube clip and cnet review. but after reading revoo..I might have to think again

Don't forget the extra £10 off if you have £10 in ur phone fund or more. (£20 if you have £10, £40 if you have £30 ect)

Nice Deal

stupid concept. square phone? whats the point? the screen is tiny.

Orange SF is surely a better buy.

But is it 1080p?

Nice little device. I'm sure my youngest would love one.

Hot.

This was voted worst Android Phone by Cnet. Screen too small seemed to be the main problem.

The screen "too small" problem can be overcome easily. Change the Launcher to something like ADW and have a 3x3 grid instead of the default 4x4.

At £99 this is a good deal, especially as the phone has dual mics for sophisticated noise cancelling.

There are no phones that capture vids in 1080p UNTIL the new duo cores are out (sometime in March).

he was joking.

Its not the easiest phone to unlock.

If this deal went online, i would definitely purchase one.

for some reason the orange web site is slow to change prices.
The San Francisco phone was available in store before the orange web site had it.
Toshiba tg01 was the same,£99 instore then a few weeks latter £99 online too.

Yeahh thats fair enough, i mean im in no rush to get it. I already have a HTC that im happy with this would just be a nice 2nd phone to own. Read some reviews and watched reviews on youtube. Looks like a smart little piece of kit.

motrola phones suck

I went into an orange store to take a look, not impressed, seems small & flimsy (sf it is then ?)
