Orange today officially launched the Barcelona and Stockholm, two new super sleek and stylish Android handsets which are packed full of innovative features and offer customers marketing leading value on Orange pay as you go and pay monthly price plans. Orange also announced today that it will be launching the high end, Orange Monte Carlo handset in the UK later this summer.

Barcelona
Available in black with a capacitive touchscreen that features gesture recognition technology, as well as a QWERTY keyboard and 3.2 megapixel camera, the Barcelona is the perfect handset for those socialites who want to stay in touch with their mates at all times.

The 3G+ handset combines both the innovation and great value you would expect at a higher price, with it being HD Voice certified and supporting Orange Signal Boost, allowing users to benefit from enhanced indoor coverage. Not only does the Barcelona from Orange also support push email via Orange Mail, it comes fully loaded with the easy-to-use Android 2.2 operating platform offering users access to thousands of apps at their finger tips.

The Barcelona from Orange is priced at just £99.99* on Orange pay as you go price plans and is also available across pay monthly price plans for both business and consumer customers – from £10 per month.

Stockholm
Available in glossy black with a chrome compact exterior, the stylish super slick Stockholm from Orange also comes with a 3.2 megapixel camera and 2.8” QVGA capacitive touch screen making it perfect for those who like to share photos with friends on the go.

The 3G+ Stockholm also comes loaded with the ability to access Orange Signal Boost, Wi-Fi, and Bluetooth. Keen music fans are also catered for with the Stockholm featuring an MP3 player and built-in FM radio, so customers can listen to music whenever they want, wherever they want. The Stockholm from Orange is priced at £79.99* on pay as you go.

Monte Carlo
Finally, Orange also today unveiled the feature packed Monte Carlo. Available later this summer, the Monte Carlo will come loaded with the technology and specifications traditionally associated with a high end smart phone.

Featuring a high quality 5 megapixel camera, 800Mhz processor and a 4.3-inch capacitive touchscreen that offers an incredible experience for viewing videos, playing games and video messaging - the 3G+ Monte Carlo utilises Google’s 2.3 Gingerbread operating system. The handset is also HD Voice and Orange Signal Boost compatible and will be Digital Living Network Alliance certified, so customers share their music, videos and photos with absolute ease. Monte Carlo from Orange will be launched later this summer with pricing and availability will be announced nearer the time.
