HTC’s Touch Dual smartphone has finally landed in the UK, slightly later than anticipated. However, it has appeared though - as expected - on Orange.

The handset has cropped up on Orange’s UK website, with a lovely free price tag – provided you sign a £35-a-month contract with the network operator.

It was originally thought that the Touch Dual would go on sale across Europe at the end of October, initially through Orange.

The Dual doesn’t have Wi-Fi connectivity, but does provide HSDPA ‘super 3G’ high-speed download technology and Bluetooth 2.0 with Enhanced Data Rate (EDR). It’s a tri-band GSM/GPRS/Edge handset and has a front-facing camera suitable for video calls, displayed on its 2.6in display.
