Orange UK will handle your Windows Phone 7 needs

For years, Orange have worked closely with Microsoft (and HTC) to deliver Windows Mobile phones to the UK marketplace — indeed I reckon I’ve paid Orange at least 10,000 pounds over the past — what — 8 years or so — because of their Windows Mobile deals. It’s not just me though. Orange has sold over 2 million Windows Mobile phones since 2002.

So it’s no surprise to see that Orange has partnered closely with Microsoft to deliver two new devices to market featuring Windows Phone 7.

Orange will be carrying the HTC Mozart and the Samsung Omnia 7 and they’ll be hitting stores by the 21st of October. They’ve also worked hard to deliver some additional Orange-related services that you’ll find pre-installed:

– Orange Wednesdays: 2-4-1 cinema ticket app – allowing you to read reviews, watch trailers as well as redeem 2-4-1 voucher all from your handset
– Orange Maps: Your personal navigation system, offering turn-by-turn GPS guidance
– Your Orange: to help you keep up-to-date and manage your Orange account – access help articles and get the latest info on your Magic Numbers
– Orange Daily: Bringing you a selection of at-a-glance news, sport and weather content as well as extras such as Wikipedia

Here’s the Samsung:
