Orange To Launch Android Handset Boston

Some Android news coming from across the pond.  European wireless carrier Orange has announced that it will soon be releasing an Android powered handset named Boston(seen in the picture above).  Manufactured by Foxconn, the new handset should land exclusively at Orange, while being expected to be put on sale with a price tag of only €1.00. Now that is cheap!

The Boston is said to feature a 3.2-inch touchscreen display capable of delivering a 480 x 320 pixels resolution, along with a 5-megapixel camera, and a Qualcomm 600MHz processor inside, coupled with 256MB of RAM, along with a microSD memory card for additional storage space. At the same time the new handset is expected to arrive on shelves with Wi-Fi 802.11b/g and Bluetooth 2.0 + EDR connectivity options, as well as with a built-in GPS receiver, which is meant to make it even more appealing.

The Boston is expected to ship with Google’s Android 1.6 operating system on board, which might not sound that great, though it seems that software updates are set to arrive after launch. I can’t wait to hear more about this phone, it looks very attractive.

So Android fans, any interest in this handset?
