Orange Monte Carlo

Orange is set to release yet another branded handset powered by the Android operating system – the Monte Carlo.

Named after the popular tourist district of Monaco, the Monte Carlo is essentially the UK edition of the ZTE Skate and the long awaited successor to the well received Orange San Francisco.

And with a 4.3-inch capacitive touchscreen, a five-megapixel camera and Android 2.3 – aka Gingerbread – on board, it looks to be worth the wait, too. This is particularly impressive considering the ZTE Skate is already confirmed to cost no more than €200 (around £180), making the Monte Carlo a potential bargain for what it offers.

Other features include a none-too-shabby 800MHz processor with 500MB of RAM, plus HD calls on Orange’s network, Wi-Fi, FM radio and a microUSB port to name a few.

Right now, Orange’s website lists the handset as ‘coming soon’ and it looks like it’ll only be available on Pay as you go. For this kind of price point, you can hardly complain.
