about the Barcelona and Stockholm handsets. At the bottom of this was some nice information regarding the Skate:

Monte Carlo

Finally, Orange also today unveiled the feature packed Monte Carlo. Available later this summer, the Monte Carlo will come loaded with the technology and specifications traditionally associated with a high end smart phone.

Featuring a high quality 5 megapixel camera, 800Mhz processor and a 4.3-inch capacitive touchscreen that offers an incredible experience for viewing videos, playing games and video messaging - the 3G+ Monte Carlo utilises Google’s 2.3 Gingerbread operating system. The handset is also HD Voice and Orange Signal Boost compatible and will be Digital Living Network Alliance certified, so customers share their music, videos and photos with absolute ease. Monte Carlo from Orange will be launched later this summer with pricing and availability will be announced nearer the time.

I'm liking the DLNA support!

I think they will price it in a The Good, The Bad and The Ugly structure

Making the Skate more expensive, £200 or more.

Then Stockholm mid range and Barcelona cheapest

If it's priced £120 or less, sure. Would be nice to have another device to play around with, plus I really want to see the screen size in person.

Stockholm syndrome is £80

Barcelon is £100

here's hoping for £120 for the Monte Carlo

Comments?

Is it DLNA as a source, DLNA as a renderer, or DLNA as a controller?

Just serving up files for display elsewhere is much easier than acting as a renderer - and while nice its not as much interest to me as being able to stream and display video & audio files on the device.

Acting as a DLNA renderer would need support for more than the usual MP4 SP video codec.
