Gadgets are funny business – the high end models are the most desirable in terms of design as well as functions most of the time, but then again, they do not generate the most sales for a company, since any graph would show that the mid-range and entry-level devices would do far better since the majority of the population would be able to afford them. Well, having said that, I am not opposed to high end devices – I would associate them with Formula 1 racing, pushing the boundaries of mobile technology always so that the masses will benefit in the long run. T-Mobile UK’s latest smartphone would not fall under the high end category, but rather, will be an entry-level participant known as the Vivacity.
The Vivacity smartphone will run on Android 2.3 Gingerbread, bringing along with it a 3.5″ display, tipping the scales at 118 grams (4.16oz) and measuring a rather diminutive 115mm x 58mm x 10.5mm. There is a 5-megapixel camera located at the back, and the screen itself ain’t too shabby with a WVGA (480 x 800 pixel) resolution. A microSD memory card slot is there for expansion purposes, while 512MB RAM ought to be enough for the average user. It is available for 99GBP (US$153) on a Pay As You Go plan, but if you want it for free, then be prepared to assign yourself to a 24 month contract and a 10GBP monthly plan.
