The Orange San Diego marks a significant milestone in the mobile industry. It's not the biggest, fastest, smallest, slimmest or cheapest phone, but Intel is inside. It's not even the first handset to sport an Intel chip, that accolade goes to the...

Europe's first Intel-powered phone is a fast performer, with a decent camera and HDMI port. The Orange livery seems a bit OTT and it's a shame it's not running the latest version of Android, but you get a considerable amount of bang for your £200...

Intel may be late to the party but the Medfield-based Atom Z2460 proves the giant can take its design expertise from decades of desktop and laptop processors and apply it to the low-power environment of smartphones. It is both a fast and frugal...

After the initial setup wizard on the San Diego we are presented with a home screen which pretty much screams Orange. It isn't over the top in terms of skinning but the colour scheme is very obvious. A Google search bar is present on the main screen...

Orange have already managed to bring to the table a lot of budget-class PAYG handsets, namely the San Francisco and the San Francisco II. The San Diego is another prime example as it does contain a mouth-watering spec for £199.99.DesignBefore we mention...

At first glance, the Orange San Diego impresses – it offers smooth, speedy performance, and has a decent screen, but its disappointing keyboard lets it down. While Orange still offers decent smartphones that are great value, there are plenty more...

In the late 90s and early 00s almost all desktop computers had Intel inside. Now, after years of false starts, the company has finally moved into the smartphone market. The San Diego is the first European phone to feature their Intel Atom processor. It's...

Intel deserves some credit. The company has been trying to make x86 work in mobile devices for quite some time, and has finally proven that the whole package is possible with good performance sans ridiculous battery consumption. Now the company needs...

Handsomely specified and cleverly priced, the Orange San Diego offers a lot of phone for the money. That said, it’s a bit short on style, has a so-so camera, doesn’t support a lot of popular gaming titles and at launch Ice Cream Sandwich is a...

DesignThe design of the San Diego overall is fairly uninspiring. There's a glossy black front paired with a matte, soft touch back panel, which although it feels nice to hold in the hand, won't be turning any heads. However, the chrome edging around...

The Orange San Diego is the first Android Phone with an Intel chipset. It's packing a pin sharp display, powerful processor and 8-megapixel camera and at just £200, it's fiercely priced given the spec-sheet. It sounds great, but does the reality live up...

Intel has delivered a solid product in conjunction with Orange. The high performance is offered at a mid-range price and the battery life is up there with other Android. Even the lack of business apps can be fixed with a quick trip to the Android...
