The wireless and mobile broadband-enabled telephones will be sold through O2 and Carphone Warehouse outlets as well as Apple's store network.

Owners of the devices will be able to surf the internet for free through 7,500 Wi-Fi hotspots, which will be provided by TheCloud.

They can also browse web content through the users' home wireless connections

Contracts run for 18 months, at price points of £35 for 200 minutes and 200 text messages, £45 (600 minutes and 500 texts) and £55 (1,200 minutes and 500 texts).
