Orange offers Vegas phone

UK-based wireless provider Orange is now offering what it is touting as being the smallest, lightest and least expensive touchscreen device in the country with the Vegas handset. Features of the handset, which looks like an HTC Touch, include a 2.4-inch display, a 1.3-megapixel camera on the rear panel and what looks like a front-facing camera for video calls, though Orange makes no mention of such a capability.

The dual-band GSM handset will play back MP3 files and FM radio broadcasts via connected headphones or its built-in speaker. Internal memory is fixed at 64MB, though a microSD memory card slot lets users expand it. Bluetooth connections are supported, though networking is relatively limited as it keeps to basic GPRS rather than 3G.

Sold as a pay-as-you-go device, Orange's Vegas handset is currently available in black or pink for the equivalent of $72. [via Reg Hardware]
