Orange now shipping the 'Black Edition' HTC Desire – yours on £22.50 tariffs

Orange has finally started taking online orders for the exclusive Black Edition HTC Desire it revealed a good few weeks back and it’s available on some rather generous packages.

The cheapest monthly tariff is a 24-month ‘Dolphin 25′ bundle, which gives you the handset for £99, along with 300 minutes of human voice interaction, 500MB of the internet and unlimited text messages, all for an online-only discounted monthly price of £22.50.

That’s not bad. Here it is in our test-order basket:

No order was actually placed, this was simply a test to see if you get charged £299 for shipping at the final hurdle. You don’t. But it still doesn’t look very “black” though, does it?

    Though the phone is now listed on the website as being available, it would not let me complete the order. Failed at the personal details page. I rang sales, who said the phone isn’t in stock yet. It is expected today (4th May), but they haven’t got it yet. I will get a call once it is available. There is only 2,000 phones available in the first delivery.

    • Sony Xperia Z2 review

      This is Sony’s latest go at producing a high-spec Android flagship model, with the Xperia Z2 ticking every one of 2014’s must-have tech bullet points. It has a large 5.2-inch 1080p display. It has the hot new Qualcomm Snapdragon 801 chipset inside. It has a massive 3GB of RAM and 16GB of onboard storage. It’s […]

    • LG/Google Nexus 5 review

      Nexus 5It’s smooth to use, the 1080p display is sharp, clear and bright, the device is extremely light and thin and therefore very pocketable and portable — much more so than other 5-inch phones we’ve used. And yet… we’re a bit unimpressed by the overall package…

      We bought one of these using our actual money.

First impressions of the Kogan Agora […]

    • HTC One V review

      The HTC One V is HTC’s third entry in its high-profile new HTC One range, offering a smaller 3.7″ display running on a single-core 1GHz processor. It is is very much the “affordable” option in HTC’s newest Android series, but it still arrives running the same HTC Sense 4 interface we saw in the excellent […]

    • HTC One S review

      The HTC One S is the piggy in the middle of HTC’s 2012 line-up, offering a 4.3″ AMOLED display inside a very slim and stylish aluminium chassis.

    • HTC One X review

      Here it is then, HTC’s new quad-core monster, the 4.7″ flagship for 2012 that introduces the Tegra 3 processor to mobile phones, updates HTC’s range to Android 4.0 and brings us the supposedly streamlined version 4.0 of HTC’s Sense user interface. You also get a fantastic 8megapixel camera that we’ve previously examined in great detail, […]

    • HTC One X review: Camera, photo and video samples

      HTC’s new quad-core flagship phone doesn’t just feature Android 4.0, a 4.7″ display and Nvidia’s newest Tegra 3 chipset – there’s also an entirely new 8megapixel camera in the phone, powered by a system HTC is calling ImageSense. And this camera is one of the many highlights of the new Android phone, offering the perfect […]
