Orange has launched three Android smartphones with its own branding, with two models available in stores from today. In keeping with the naming based on worldwide cities, Orange has called these new models the Barcelona, Stockholm and Monte Carlo.

The Barcelona is a portrait QWERTY smartphone running Android 2.2, with a capacitive touchscreen and 3.2-megapixel camera. It also supports the Orange HD Voice codec and has compatibility with the Orange Signal Boost service for improved indoor coverage, using Wi-Fi.

It is available in stores today with prices starting at £99.99 on prepay, and on pay monthly tariffs starting at just £10 per month.

Stockholm is another Android device, with a 2.8-inch QVGA (240×320 pixel) capacitive touchscreen and a 3.2-megapixel camera. Costing £79.99 on prepay, the phone also offers compatibility with Orange Signal Boost.

Finally, the Monte Carlo – available later in the summer – is the top-performer with an 800MHz processor, Android 2.3, 5-megapixel camera and support for Orange HD Voice, Orange Signal Boost and DLNA for sharing media with compatible devices wirelessly.

Pricing and availability for the Monte Carlo will be announced later.
