The Orange Monte Carlo – Bargain of the year?


A couple of days the Orange Monte Carlo went on sale. If you have not seen this one before it is worth checking out as on pay as you go the device is only £149.99. Sound a lot of money? Well you may change your mind when you know that it has a 4.3 inch capacitive touch screen and is running Android 2.3.4.

The Monte Carlo is actually the ZTE Skate but like last years Orange San Francisco Orange have rebranded the device and if sales are as good as the San Francisco they are onto a winner.

Matt got his hands on the Monte Carlo yesterday so watch out for the unboxing video over the weekend.


Live the high life with the Monte Carlo from Orange. The top of the range 4.3-inch capacitive touch screen will amaze your friends and you can capture some wonderful photos with the 5 megapixel camera. A host of apps are available to enhance your phone via the Android 2.3 Gingerbread operating system and you can stay in touch with everyone via email using the 3G+ data speeds.


You can see the spec below :


  • 5 megapixel camera
  • HD Voice

  • Android 2.3 (Gingerbread)
  • 4.3-inch capacitive touch screen
