Orange UK is the first carrier to carry the Motorola CLIQ (under the European “DEXT” name), and they’re also the first store to sell the device. If you can’t wait until tomorrow to get your hands on Motorola’s first foray into Android, head to thecentre:mk in Milton Keynes and you can be among the first consumers in the world to snag a DEXT phone.
Orange today launched its first UK Multimedia Store — a place with massive screens and sleek design — in Milton Keynes, England. According to the store announcement, the new outlet will sell the DEXT a day before anyone else in the world. Since most retailers were expected to begin selling the DEXT tomorrow, October 7th, that means the phone is available right now!
Here’s a statement from Sian Doyle, Director of Orange Retail:
“Milton Keynes offers the perfect venue to launch the first ever Orange Multimedia Store. Its young demographic and forward-thinking population plus the estimated potential 297,000 mobile users in the city, tells us there is high demand for the latest mobile, broadband and digital solutions. Also, as a sign of our commitment to the Milton Keynes area, we were able to have the much anticipated Motorola DEXT™ with MOTOBLUR™ available exclusively on opening day, a day before it goes on sale anywhere else in the world.”
