Orange's 3G blitz starts Monday

Mobile phones

Well the rumours turned out to be true. Orange is set to announce its 3G offering for consumers on Monday when it will give journos a quick spin with its new handsets.

Some of us have already been there and done that with Orange’s lead 3G mobile – the Sanyo S750.

Orange has also lined up Nokia’s key 3G phone the 6630. There’s no word yet if web browsing beyond the Orange portal will be included in Orange’s 3G tariffs. If surfing is included the Nokia 6630 will be a very attractive option for web obsessives – we should know because we have been using it on the Vodafone 3G network all week. Also on board is LG with the 8150, a slightly different take on the handset that has been doing great business for UK 3G network 3. Completing the range are the rather podgy Sony Ericsson Z1010 and Samsung’s Z107.

As for the network Orange is now claiming that it 3G coverage will be available to 66% of the population – slightly more than Vodafone but still a long way behind 3.
