Orange to launch The Barcelona

Screen shot 2011-06-13 at 08.39.45

With the huge success last year that Orange had with the San Francisco (ZTE Blade) could they be set to do it again? On the ‘coming soon’ page of the Orange site is the Orange Barcelona, a front facing QWERTY Android device. Running 2.2, supporting HD voice and with a touch screen this one could be another huge hit for Orange. No word on pricing yet but I would imagine it would be very competitive.

Orange say:

Brighten up your life with the Barcelona from Orange. Equipped with the powerful Android 2.2 operating system and a 2.6-inch TFT touch screen, this phone makes communication easy and fun. And it really looks the part with its sleek, ergonomic design. With a 3.2-megapixel camera to play with, you’ll always be able to capture life’s moments as well as listening to your favourite music using the FM radio.

You can see the specs below:



  • Android 2.2 (Froyo)
