Orange will be the first to offer such a phone

A spokesman for Samsung has commented on a recent partnership between itself and network operator Orange.

This week details emerged about a new handset that would be the first of its kind to offer users a full menu system and predictive text technology based entirely on the Welsh language.

Mark Mitchinson, vice-president of Samsung Mobile in the UK and Ireland commented that the decision to equip the S5600 with this option was a "ground-breaking" one and that both companies expected the device to be popular.

"Through partnership with Orange, we will truly delight our Welsh speaking customers by providing a mobile phone with widget, excellent camera functionality and full internet browsing capabilities," he added.

The country's minister for heritage Alun Ffred Jones offered his congratulations to the partners as it clearly had responded to the needs of a large part of its British customer base.

Consumers recycling mobile phones will be able to get their hands on the Samsung S5600 from September 1st. The device joins others in the manufacturers range such as the Tocco and Omnia.
