A quick postscript to the Orange 3G announcement. The network confirmed that for its 3G trials it will use Motorola and LG handsets. The Motorola deal is no surprise, but as for LG it is a huge shot in the arm as the Korean company which has only had a presence in the European market for a couple of months.
Orange will use the U810 handset which has been a firm favourite here at TD since we had our first glimpse of it during summer 2003. The clamshell phone is one of the best 3G handset we have seen so far.
Orange has said it will work with other handset partners, but , like Three, it has said nothing about taking Nokia 3G phones.
