HTC's Desire: Android 2.1 on board

The phone runs Android 2.1, HTC said.

It has a 5Mp autofocus camera and assisted GPS - which Orange's own Orange Maps taps into for satnav duties. Orange has customised the UI to add links to its own TV, Photography and Games services.

Orange will offer the Desire for free on "selected" pay monthly tariffs, though it didn't say how much they will cost, or provide specifics on the duration of the contract. ®
