Orange introduces the mobile phone visor

Want to watch the World Cup on the move? Worried about an outbreak of sunny weather ruining your outdoor fun? Well the Orange network hears your pain, and has introduced its very own mobile phone visor.

Yes, that's right, a visor for your smartphone. But you'll be the smart one when the sun comes out - no screen glare here, as the visor will keep your screen clear so you don't miss a kick. Battery life and data allowance permitting, of course.

Steve Wallage, head of sport partnerships and services for Orange UK, said: 'Based on the surge in demand for mobile TV during the Ashes last summer, we expect viewing figures could rocket by at least 74% during the World Cup. Orange’s mobile phone visors have been designed so fans can watch games wherever they are, whenever they want.'

The visor is pretty low-tech, but that doesn't matter because it's absolutely free. Just follow the instructions on the website to get one. Of course, you then need to get the footie on your phone. Orange has that covered too - customers can watch games shown on ITV1 live on mobiles by purchasing a mobile TV package for £5 per month.
