An upgrade option?

Consumers could be tempted to sell their old mobile phone for cash to put towards the new HTC Desire handset, which is soon to be offered by Orange.

The network announced that the Android device will be available to customers for free on selected pay monthly price plans.

Downloadable applications will be available for the Desire and the 1Ghz Qualcomm Snapdragon processor promises "superfast " access to services - including Orange Maps, Orange TV, games and Orange Windows Live - direct from the homescreen.

Francois Mahieu, director of devices for Orange UK, said: "We're really pleased to be working with HTC to bring the latest Android 2.1 device to market. The Desire is a truly powerful handset which will allow consumers to get to grips with all the things they love about the internet."

It is expected that the HTC Desire will be available in the UK from April.

A recent YouGov survey found Orange to the top mobile broadband provider in the UK.
