The TG01 will be free to customers prepared to sign up to a £39.15 ($63/€45) per month, two-year contract which includes 1200 minutes for calling to any network, plus unlimited texts and unlimited anytime internet browsing.

In case you’ve been living under a rock for the last few months, here’s a rundown of the TG01’s main features.

The 70 x 130 x 9.9mm phone is based around a speedy 1GHz Qualcomm QSD8250 processor and operated through a spacious 4.1in, 800 x 480 touchscreen display. Don’t mistake it for the latest Android device, though, because it actually runs on Windows Mobile 6.1 Professional, Orange said.

A 3.2Mp autofocus camera lurks around the TG01’s rear, while tri-band GSM and 3G provide the relevant connections for voice calls and mobile web, respectively. Wi-Fi 802.11b/g is also supported.

A healthy range of multimedia formats are supported, including MP3 and AAC audio, and MPEG 4 video. The phone also supports Java, Orange added.

Data’s stored onto Micro SD memory cards of up to 32GB and can be moved around wirelessly over Bluetooth 2.0 or though a USB 2.0 connection. ®
