Anyone tried the Orange Monte Carlo?

The Orange Monte Carlo looks like a good budget option -- has anyone given it a go?

Went with Samsung Ace instead. I think it's better phone at same price point £100.
Alternatively I would pay a little more and for Xperia Play @ £150

I've had a play with a Monte Carlo, my impression was they masked over it being a pretty slow phone with a big flashy screen...unfortunately, the beauty is only skin deep, the processor is ancient and shows it. I'd go for an Xperia Play, especially as that's been confirmed for an ICS update.

I've also checked XDA Devs and there is no support for Monte Carlo, not like it is for SF. Galaxy line has good support. I had Ace network unlocked and rooted in 20 minutes. Was even easier than HTC.

Orange phones comes with lots of bloatware and annoying orange colors - you will have to root and flash different image to have phone work lag free.
