It's the £99 Android phone

First there was the $200 Android tablet, now there's the £99 Android phone. Available on Three, the ZTE Racer is the cheapest smartphone yet - that £99 is pay as you go with no minimum contract.

But is it any good? It has a respectable 600MHz processor, but an old-fashioned resistive touch screen, which is a bit of a downer. Engadget says it's 'actually a pretty decent-looking device from afar' and that 'call quality is good', but that the screen made typing text messages and emails 'horribly inaccurate'.

Still, if all you can afford is that or some crappy dumbphone, it's got to be worth considering, right? Anyway, it's available now from Three.
