HTC S310 Coming to Orange UK

| February 4, 2007 |

OK something strange is happening at Orange UK. We already know that Orange’s own version of the HTC Oxygen, the Orange SPV C100, has been available from Orange in other countries but it has been widely accepted that the device would never see a UK launch.
