Orange's latest own branded messaging phone costs just £55, but does it deliver the goods?

Sturdy design, Impressive keyboard, Good call quality

Slow browser, No Wi-Fi or 3G support, Doesn't support push email

Orange Rio review -

 

Great combination of QWERTY keyboard and touch-screen for fluid navigation, intuitive calling and texting apps, compact home-screen with app shortcuts and widgets

Mediocre camera, have to pay to use Windows Live Messenger

Editor's Review of the Rio 2

 

The Orange Rio II sports a 2.4-inch touchscreen and a full QWERTY keypad, making it a great cut-price alternative to the BlackBerry Bold 9900
