Android-based Orange Barcelona coming soon
A new Orange-branded Android smartphone is going to be launched in the UK soon (and probably in other Orange markets, too). Called Orange Barcelona, the handset is only 9.9mm thick, and comes with a full QWERTY keyboard and a 2.6 inch landscape touchscreen display.
Unlike the Orange San Francisco (aka ZTE Blade), which was introduced last year running Android 2.1, the Orange Barcelona runs Android 2.2 Froyo.
The new phone also features HSDPA, GPS, Orange Maps, 3.5mm headset jack, HD Voice, FM radio, and a 3.2MP camera.
Orange will offer the Barcelona for free on select monthly plans. PAYG customers will also be able to buy the handset, for a price that hasn’t been unveiled. You can check out the Barcelona here at Orange UK.
