O2 has begun selling its HTC Orbit GPS-equipped smart phone - essentially the HTC P3300 - in the UK, bundling the handset with a free copy of T-Mobile's favourite sat nav software, CoPilot Live.

Orbit itself is a quad-band Windows Mobile 5.0 device with Wi-Fi and a two megapixel camera on board. The carrier's website claimed a talk-time of five hours and up to 200 hours in stand-by mode. The gadget sports a 2.8in, 320 x 240, 65,536-colour display, 64MB of RAM, 128MB of Flash ROM and a Micro SD card slot for more.

O2 is charging business customers from £85.10 exc VAT for the first phone, with extra handsets priced at £204.25 exc VAT or more. ®
