Sometimes, all we need is the bare essentials and that’s precisely what Orange, the UK wireless provider, is offering with their Vegas phone. It’s small, inexpensive and provides a touchscreen on a device that normally wouldn’t have one.
The Vegas has a 2.4-inch touch display. There’s a standard 1.3-megapixel camera, a built-in speaker, a microSD memory card slot with 64MB of built-in storage, Bluetooth and support for MP3 files and FM radio.
It also has a headphone jack and GPRS networking, rather than 3G. You can get the Vegas phone from Orange now for just the equivalent of $72 in either pink or black color options. This phone is sold on a pay-as-you-go plan. There’s no doubt this phone is basic, but it offers some of that highly-coveted touch appeal for a fraction of the cost.
