Big day for Orange tomorrow with the UK launch of its 3G service for consumers. The service wad due to be up and running earlier in the year, but problems with the handsets delayed its delivery.
Quite what Orange will major on remains to be seen. 3G for consumers seems to be a technology without a killer application. As Three has discovered person to person video calling hasn’t chimed with the UK population, and unfortunately for Orange, its rivals seem have to snapped up the best sports video content.
It’ll be interesting also to see which handset Orange leads with. It appears that the LG U8110 which has been a huge hit for Three, will be one of its key phones along with a model from Motorola.
