"Berlin" first in a range of city-themed phones
As part of the wider announcement regarding the forthcoming Christmas handset line-up, Orange revealed that they are planning to launch an own-branded handset. Pocket-Lint reports.
"Refreshingly called the "Berlin" - though it's for the UK Market, the initial device will actually be the first of a whole range of city-themed handsets from the mobile phone operator.
... Unlike rival operator's white-label devices, this new geographical range has been conceived for, and tailored to, the UK market, although Mahieu does not rule out launches elsewhere in the world.
The Berlin will be an entry-level 3G slider handset with a rubberised finish that will be offered on a pay as you go tariff. It's a basic offering for a youth audience who want 3G connectivity but don't want to break the piggy-bank."
