French mobile operator Orange does have a presence in other countries as well, and they have just announced a trio of spanking new Android-powered smartphones. While these three handsets will not shatter your world by occupying the high end side of things, they are certainly decent enough to use as a workman’s device. A couple of these will be powered by Qualcomm chips, although the San Remo relies on a […]
There have been plenty of rumors suggesting that Facebook could be interested in making another mobile phone despite the less than stellar reception they had with the HTC ChaCha. Whether those rumors pan out remain to be seen, but in the meantime it certainly looks like the social networking giant has a lot of interest as far as the mobile scene is concerned. French carrier Orange has recently announced that […]
The notion of contactless payments with the help of a mobile has been around for quite some time. However, we didn’t see any large-scale use of such a feature so far. This may change as the Samsung Galaxy S3 gets a contactless payment service, thanks to Orange and Barclaycard.With this, the Galaxy S3 has effectively become the first ever Android phone to make use of a contactless payment service – […]
A couple of days ago, we reported that UK carrier Orange was set to debut the Intel-powered Android handset today. True to their word, the carrier has officially taken the wraps off the Orange San Diego. The device was previously codenamed Santa Clara but we guess it got a name change upon its release. The handset is expected to launch on the 6th of June with both pay-as-you-go and monthly […]
Early this year, we first caught a glimpse of the Intel-based Android smartphone from Orange. But it was at the Mobile World Congress when the carrier officially announced the phone with its name, Santa Clara. We even got the chance to grab a few demos on the device alongside other Intel Medfield-powered devices. Specification-wise, the Santa Clara features a 1.6 GHz Intel Atom processor Z2460, a 4.03? 1024 x 600 […]
Intel announced their plans for mobile phones last year that will be powered by the company’s Medfield chipset. So far it seems that the first Intel-based smartphone has been launched in India as the Lava XOLO X900, but what happened to the Orange Santa Clara that was designated for the UK market? The good news for UK residents is that the carrier Orange has since launched a registration page for […]

Intel touts its Medfield platform to provide blazing speed and high fluidity to the user interface, internet browsing, HD video playback and 3D gaming.
A while back we reported on a leaked Motorola phone that not only would come with Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich on board, but would also be powered by Intel’s upcoming mobile processor, the Medfield platform. Well if you’ve enjoyed Intel’s processors so far on the desktop, notebook and netbooks, you might be pleased to hear that another Intel-powered smartphone may be coming in the form of the London by […]
With Nokia putting all of their proverbial eggs into the Windows Phone basket, you would think that they’d be eager to get their handsets out to as many people as possible. Oddly enough they chose to do a European launch first, followed by a US launch next year, but now it seems that even in Europe, not everyone will be able to get their hands on the device.
Good news for folks living in Poland thinking about picking up a Windows Phone device. Instead of just forking out the money or trading in their current phones without knowing what they’re in for, consumers will get the chance to borrow a HTC 7 Mozart phone from Orange stores for a limited period of time to see what it’s like to live with a Windows Phone device. After all, you […]
Continents are bridged as NTT DoCoMo of Japan and Orange have come together to work on a new 3D smartphone that will arrive in Europe – France specifically, thanks to hardware provided by Sharp in the form of the Sharp Aquos Phone SH80F. Of course, if that is a mouthful to speak (and remember), perhaps a more abbreviated SH-12C would be more advisable? The Aquos Phone SH80F will feature a […]
When is the iPhone 5 coming out? That’s probably a question many are dying to know the answer to, and so far based on the rumors in the past, we’ve come across dates such as vague as “end of September” to “early October”, and more specific dates such as October 7th and October 21st, but now for those tracking the release of the iPhone 5, October 15th is another date […]

While a smartphone is an awesome device to have, one of its biggest drawbacks when compared to regular feature phones is its battery life. Many phones have trouble making it through a full day (sometimes even half the day when it is used a lot). Consumers are relying on using backup batteries or bringing chargers around just to make sure their devices stay juiced throughout the day.On the other hand, […]
