The deal so far i believe is only in store as i cant seem to find it online. In Bristol Cabot circus orange store they had 2 left at 99.99 with the obligatory 10 pounds making the total of 109.99. The lady at the store said it was in all stores but stock was going quickly

There is an Orange update to Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich once you switch it on. Much better than Gingerbread.

i have the pic above in my skydrive but cant seem to get it to work so that it shows on here with the link crated so here is the link for the pic skydrive.live.com/red…685!824&authkey=!AGnIbtZ8JGxNjGU

This is by far the best phone for £100. It'll pretty much match a Galaxy S2 speed wise. Camera is a bit pants though.
It's certainly a lot faster than my old G300 which used to be the benchmark for sub £100 phones.

...can it be unlocked and rooted?

confirm this can be looted and rocked

It will run on Orange or T-Mobile, and after 3 months I've read you can pay £20 (?) to get network unlock.

There's no root, but there is already an OTA update to ICS

heat added good screen resolution cheap and performance is like s dual core!

not being able to root it would put me off as there a number of apps that I use that require root access.

Nice for the price but lack of root scuppers this one for me.

Yes you can root. Use the AIO tool at sandiego.modaco.com. You just cant flash custom roms (locked bootloader). Unlocking so far is only direct via Orange. Using that tool you can also flash a Xolo rom (it's sold in India as the Xolo X900) which is much closer to stock ICS, and a further option takes almost all the way to stock by ripping out the Xolo apps.

An update to JB is expected soon too, although this isn't 100% certain.

I picked one of these up at the end of 2012 for this price when they also gave out the free headphones, and agree for the price it's a phenomenal phone. Shame it's no longer available online, but at least they're still in shops. FYI the latest models come out the box with ICS, so no newly bought ones should be running GB (unless it's extremely old stock).

Here is the thread from the end of last year: hotukdeals.com/dea…414
There's a few useful comments to be found in that thread.

Haven't been able to find one, anyone know of any around South London.
