T-Mobile UK launches the Vivacity – for £99 on PAYG

T-Mobile has fleshed out the details regarding the T-Mobile vivacity, also announcing that the Android phone has gone on sale today for £99 on PAYG SIMs. You can also buy the thing on monthly tariffs starting at £10, if coming up with £99 is too much to handle in these harsh economic times.

Internally, the Vivacity runs Android 2.3, while that’s a 3.5” WVGA TFT capacitive screen, plus there’s a 5megapixel camera with flash around the back. Very nice for £99.


That must be the most stylish of the sub-£100 Android phones by quite a margin. Bit of an iPhone 4 clone, though. Here’s the thing from the people:

    This = San Francisco II. Same phone in a different case. I think this looks nicer than the Orange version.

      It’s a much nicer case. Capacitive buttons and a front-facing camera. Amazing for the price.
