Orange has today launched a new all-in-one communications tool for Android that promises to “change the way you communicate with the people that matter.” Called Libon, the app provides users with free calls, text messages, and a smart visual voicemail service that’s compatible with any wireless network in over 100 countries.
BARCELONA, MOBILE WORLD CONGRESS — European carrier Orange is at Mobile World Congress this week to show off its latest lineup of own-brand Android devices. There are three altogether — called the Lumo, Nivo, and San Remo — and like the company’s previous own-brand devices, they’re midrange and entry-level devices aimed at budget-conscious consumers who want a modern Android smartphone.
Two of them are particularly interesting: The San Remo is Orange’s first large-screen smartphone, packing a 4.7-inch IPS LCD display; while the Lumo is its first to boast speedy 4G LTE connectivity.
We went hands-on with all three devices to see if they’re any good.
Following its much-anticipated unveiling on Tuesday, the HTC One is now available to pre-order in the U.K. from the official HTC Store and from a number of third-party providers. The SIM-free model is priced at £519.99 (approx. $803) with 32GB of internal storage, but the handset can be obtained for free on two-year contracts for £36 (approx. $56) per month.
It’s available in black and silver, but there’s no sign of the red model that HTC has been advertising on its website.
EE has today announced plans to rollout its 4G LTE network to another 27 towns in the United Kingdom by June 2013, expanding its 4G coverage to 55% of the U.K. population. The carrier is currently the only network to offer a 4G service in the U.K., but its latest announcements comes as rivals begin making preparations for their own 4G services.
AT&T could acquire a European carrier as it looks to expand its business overseas, The Wall Street Journal reports. The company is reportedly looking at way in which it can escape the growth constraints in the United States by entering a new wireless market where it can “upgrade technology and rollout more lucrative pricing strategies.”
Although AT&T is only identifying targets at this point, it’s though the company could announce a deal before the end of the year.
Lookout has announced a new partnership with Orange that will see its mobile security software pre-installed on Android devices that are sold by the carrier throughout Europe. France, Spain, Slovakia, and the United Kingdom will be first to get the software in early 2013, and more countries will be added throughout the year.
