Orange France touts video spectacles

But don't expect spectacular videos...

The Power of One Brief: Top reasons to choose HP BladeSystem

Fed up with having to squint at movies, photos, emails and text messages on your mobile's microscopic display? Then Orange France is offering the full heads-up experience, courtesy of its "video glasses".

The slimline shades hook up to Samsung's D600E mobile phone by cable to display whatever's on the screen. The glasses also sport a pair of integrated earphones.

The spectacles cost €299 - €120 more than Orange France wants for the D600E you'll need. Both are available from some of Orange France's shops in larger cities around France, along with a number of France Telecom stores. ®
