HTC Hero on Orange gets a firmware update

by: Michael OrylFebruary 4, 2010

HTC’s just mentioned a new firmware update for the Hero on Orange a few minutes ago, so I thought I’d point it out to all of our EU readers.

You can get the HTC Hero firmware update here.

Orange to design its own Android handset?

by: Susan ElleryDecember 30, 2009

Digitimes, the semi-reliable newspaper based in Taiwan, is reporting that Orange has contracted with Foxconn International Holdings to build a new Android handset. The supposedly carrier-designed handset is expected to incorporate a 3G chipset from Qualcomm and will ship in the second quarter of 2010. If this rumor pans out, Orange’s new Android offering will join the Motorola Dext and the HTC Tattoo in the Orange lineup.

Orange UK announced mid-October launch of Motorola DEXT

by: Michael OrylSeptember 16, 2009

Motorola DEXT for Orange UK

Today Motorola made good on its promise that we’d see the new CLIQ offered by Orange UK as the DEXT.  The official press release came out of Orange today, and the device is set to be available in mid-October, the same time frame we’ve been hearing for T-Mobile USA’s version.

We’ve pasted in a demo video produced by Orange for your enjoyment.  It’s available after the jump.

Motorola DEXT/CLIQ to launch in October? Moto UK can confirm.

by: James TromansSeptember 15, 2009

Orange UK

We already know that the DEXT will be launched on Orange UK in Q4 of this year. What we didn’t know is when. The DEXT/CLIQ is the new Android based device from Motorola and sports two different names depending on whether you are stateside or not. Those living outside of America will become increasingly familiar with the DEXT, while those living in will recognize the CLIQ.

Orange UK have confirmed that the DEXT will become available in early October, with preorders going live on September 22nd. We are still holding our breath for pricing. Now, according to BGR, the CLIQ will land with T-Mobile and offers a leaked PowerPoint slide to [...]

T-Mobile G2 Touch delayed? Maybe

by: Michael OrylJuly 15, 2009

HTC Hero

T-Mobile UK has yet to confirm the availability date of its G2 Touch (HTC Hero) smartphone, noting that it’s not been delayed since the date was never set.  However, the launch announcement that originally went out did specify “mid-July”, so that certainly would mean sooner rather than later.

T-Mobile Germany, for its part, has said that the phone will be available in early August (“ab Anfang August”).

Orange UK still lists the device as “coming soon.”

Orange launches HTC Hero, posts video demo

by: Michael OrylJune 24, 2009

Today Orange UK announced that it will be adding the HTC Hero to its handset portfolio.  The phone will be available free to customers who sign up for a 24 month £39.15/mo contract, which includes 1200 network minutes, unlimited text, and internet browsing.  It will be available in “early July”, though we’ve been told by other, non-Orange retail sources that the device will officially be available from distributers on July 3rd (though not necessarily through Orange).  Below is a video demo of the device that Orange posted.

Orange UK to recieve the HTC Hero?

by: James TromansMay 27, 2009

The news on the wire suggests that Orange may be the first in the UK to receive the ‘HTC Hero’. Although the device has been seen around town already and the new UI for the device has already been snapped, there has been no word on the official specifications of the device. If the reports are accurate, it won’t be hitting any home runs, but may offer HSDPA connectivity, a 3MP camera and Bluetooth; all completely expected, and certainly nothing out of the ordinary.

The device is said to be hitting the USA in August, but currently we have no date lined up for the UK landing. We already heard that Orange France was meant to get a bunch of Android devices this year so it comes as [...]

DigiTimes: Sony Ericsson Android phone on Orange by year end

by: Michael OrylApril 21, 2009

Citing its favorite source, the Chinese language “Commercial Times”, DigiTimes is reporting that Sony Ericsson is thought to be offering its first Android device with European carrier Orange by the end of the year.

This oh-so-rumorous piece of information comes from “market sources” quoted by Commerical Times that claim to have seen internal Orange documents indicating a holiday season 2009 launch for the Sony Ericsson Android smartphone.

DigiTimes is known for putting out some of the lowest quality rumors in tech, though, so this is by no means fact.  Especially considering that Sony Ericsson’s CEO indicated that the company’s first [...]

Orange rumoured to release 6 Android devices in 2009

by: James TromansMarch 26, 2009

Sometimes we struggle to make posts which we feel are stretching things somewhat. This one is such a case. According to a French website called Mobinaute, Orange France is set to release a slew of Android handsets this year; six to be precise. It is very important to note that the source of this information is in question and we have no way of assuring its validity. This makes us rather skeptical about the exact figures.

The source even goes on to say that the six Android handsets will be from no less than five different brands of manufacturer, including Sony Ericsson, Motorola, LG, Samsung, and HTC. Notice that there was no word on Acer and the A1? Rumours contesting rumours, [...]

According to French site, Orange France has just confirmed that it will begin offering the HTC Dream starting tomorrow.  This will mark the first time that the device has been sold by a carrier other than T-Mobile, which markets it as the T-Mobile G1.

It appears that the Dream will be offered with a number of different tariffs and that it will cost 99 EUR (US$124.47) after rebates.    If there is anybody out there that would like to read through this French post for me and write out the details in a comment, below, that would be great.
