     Following on from the success of the LG Shine handset, the limited edition Pink Shine launches exclusively on Orange. The Shine's mirrored finish and brushed metal body perfectly combine style and function, making this a handset sure to appeal to the 85% of young women out there who want a pink handset for Christmas*.

    For the more serious follower of fashion, Orange is offering the Samsung U600 in purple. Influenced by the autumn and winter designer collections, this sleek mobile phone in this season's hottest colour comes with a 3.2 Mega pixel camera and a high quality 262K colour screen. At only 11mm thin, it is the latest model from the Ultra Edition II range.

    Named after one of the coolest cities in the World, the Christmas line up also includes ‘Berlin' from Orange. The Orange ‘Berlin' offers real value for money for the younger customer wanting a high spec device by combining the full feature set of 3G, 2 MP camera, MP3 player and Bluetooth.

     Francois Mahieu, Device Director, Orange UK said: "Colour and fashion handsets have been growing in popularity for a while now and this Christmas demand will be very high.  Based on last year's sales we predict that a quarter of all handsets sold in this period will be colour variants. People want choice, so we have secured exclusivity with top brands as well as launching our own label devices so we can offer customers the best handsets on the market in a range of colours."
