HTC Explorer coming soon to Orange

explorer For those of you looking for a small entry-level Android phone there will soon be a new kid on the block from HTC that will slide in at the lower end of the market; The HTC Explorer comes in a bit under the HTC Wildfire in terms of specification, with just a 600MHz CPU and limited internal storage. However, the Explorer does have HTC’s latest Sense 3.5 user interface and Android OS 2.3 Gingerbread.

The HTC Explorer will be available soon on the Orange network and I suspect that this will be a free on contract handset and my guess would be around £150 mark on PAYG.

We’ll get one to review soon too!
