Orange, a major communications company in Britain, has revealed a smartphone that will be their first 150Mbps LTE budget device. It’s called Gova and it sports a 1.2 GHz quad-core processor with 1GB of RAM and will launch with Android 4.3. Other specifications include a 4.5-inch screen, 8GB of storage, and a 5-megapixel rear camera.
The price still hasn’t been revealed but it’s not expected to be much. It’s expected to launch in Luxembourg, Mauritius, Moldova, Poland, Spain, Slovakia and Tunisia in April but there still isn’t any word about when it’ll be out anywhere else, including the company’s home market.
As one commenter on the source page pointed out, faster phones aren’t really what people need nowadays. What we really need are larger data allotments for less. The cost of unlimited internet on my phone is outrageous when you consider it’s a phone and not my home!
Seriously, can someone explain to me why mobile companies keep trying to sell 2GB of data like it’s a lot? AT&T’s new Framily plan boasts 10 gigs of data a month for up to 4 people like it’s something special. That’s only 2.5 gig per person! I’ve gone through a gig in a day and that’s only using my phone for a few hours without downloading anything.
