Orange confirmed the news that it will sell ZTE Skate rechristened as Monte Carlo on its network and this offering will apparently be exclusive. Orange has put the handset on its “coming soon” page.

Orange has informed The INQUIRER that the dates and pricing are not yet decided. Orange had earlier sold ZTE Blade as ZTE San Francisco phone in a similar fashion. Monte Carlo can aim to be a better handset compared to the San Francisco as it is powered by an 800MHz processor plus the Android 2.3 platform.

The 4.3 inch touchscreen with 480 x 800 resolution is a lot better than San Francisco’s 3 inch screen. A 5 megapixel camera, Bluetooth, Wi-Fi, and G-sensors are some other features of Monte Carlo. The handset is 10,mm thick and weighs 120g.

San Francisco is a budget Android handset and Orange sold it for as cheap as £79. Over 2 million San Francisco ( ZTE Blade ) handsets have reportedly been sold. We expect the pricing of the Monte Carlo handset to be competitive enough to appeal to all of us.
