Orange launches UK's cheapest touchscreen phone

If you're looking to hop on the touchscreen bandwagon on a budget, Orange has just uncovered a new wallet-friendly handset that might be right up your

At a credit crunching £48.50, the Vegas is the cheapest touch screen pay as you go handset in the UK, and is available in classic black or, exclusively to the folk at Orange, a bubblegum pink for the ladies.

The specs are pretty limited as you might expect, but for under £50 you'll get a 1.3 megapixel camera, a media player and built-in FM radio. There's 128MB of built-in memory to store your snaps and music, but you get a microSD card slot that will let you whack up the capacity to a rather respectable 4GB.

Not wanting to discriminate against the pay monthlies among you, the Vegas is also available for contract users, but we'd think this will probably be more of a pull for the pay as you goers out there.

You can get your hands on the Vegas now from Orange stores or online. Keep your peepers fixed on for a hands-on vid review very soon.
