Orange announce Windows Phone 7 handsets

Mobile phone network Orange has brought out its Windows Phone 7 offerings, the HTC Mozart and the Samsung Omnia 7.

The HTC Mozart is exclusive to Orange and has a 3.7-inch Super LCD touch screen, with an 8 megapixel camera and 8GB of internal storage - sitting just below the HTC flagship O2 handset, the HD7.

Samsung's Omnia 7 arrives also running Windows Phone 7, with a Super AMOLED 4-inch touch screen, with a 5 megapixel camera and 8GB of internal storage.

Both handsets will have quick-link access to Oranges’ services, in addition to having their own offering of the Orange turn-by-turn sat nav mapping software.

HTC's Mozart is free on a £35 a month, 24-month plan and is accompanied by 600 minutes, unlimited text messages, emails and sat nav access along with anytime Internet use.

The Samsung Omnia 7 will arrive free on a £40 a month tariff, over a 24-month period with 1,200 minutes, unlimited text messages, email and sat nav access with anytime Internet use.

Early next year Orange is enabling reverse billing on the Windows Marketplace, where the actual phone bill carries the cost of a purchased application instead of the credit card.

The Mozart and the Omnia 7 will arrive on September 21st, with both of the handsets being able to take advantage of the Everything Everywhere network sharing deal with T-Mobile where the mobiles are able to roam between the two networks with no extra charge.
