Equipped with an Intel Atom processor, the Orange San Diego is slated for an early June release in the U.K.

While the debate of what San Diego translates to in German still rages on, what is known for sure is that Orange's new device, named after said sunny California town, is going to hit U.K. stores on June 6.

According to Engadget, the phone will cost about $247 USD on a pay-as-you-go plan. With a two-year agreement, however, the handset will be priced at $20 a month.

We first caught wind of the Intel-powered device at Mobile World Congress, back when it was known as the Orange Santa Clara.

Though I'm sad to see the NorCal moniker be replaced, the smartphone will still have the 8-megapixel camera and the impressive 1.6GHz Intel Atom x86 processor. Unfortunately, it'll also ship with Android Gingerbread, instead of the latest 4.0 version.
