South Africa adds Orange

The Orange online store provides some rather fun gadgets to South Africans and we’ve had the opportunity to get our hands on a few from time to time. While the online store is rather rad, we were rather excited to hear the news that Orange plans to launch physical stores in South Africa and also possibly expand into the internet service provider market locally. While Tech Central’s Rynardt van der Berg got all those juicy details this week (which you can read about here), we decided to play with some of the gadgets currently available on the online store.

The first is the Misfit Shine Personal Activity Monitor which you can see in the header image. It’s so dainty and pretty – probably the first piece of wearable fitness tech that suits a girl’s wrist perfectly! Next, we fooled around with AwoX SmartLIGHT:

When the light was finished dancing to music off our smartphone we got hands on with Google Nexus 5.


South Africa adds Orange and we like that colour! 



I'd love to chat to you some more.
