As expected, Orange (UK) is indeed carrying the Samsung SGH-i780 Windows Mobile Professional smartphone. So it wasn't coincidence that it featured an Orange home screen when it was first unveiled during the Gitex last year.
The Samsung SGH-i780 (which we have previewed already) is a Windows Mobile 6 Professional smartphone, featuring a touchscreen in addition to the QWERTY keyboard as well as a - what Samsung calls - "optical joystick", which should allow easy navigation. Furthermore, the device sports triband GSM/GPRS/EDGE at 900/1800/1900 MHz and singleband UMTS/HSDPA at 2100 MHz. However, Orange says it's supporting only WiFi b (not g) as well as Bluetooth 2.0+EDR.

Another highlight is the inbuilt A-GPS receiver and the 2.6" 320 x 320 touchscreen which is a quite unique screen resolution for today's Windows Mobile smartphones. The SGH-i780 sports 256 MB of ROM and 128 MB of RAM which can be extended with microSD card and the main camera supports 2 megapixel, the front facing video telephony camera supports VGA.

A price or release date wasn't given yet. Also it's not known yet if other Orange countries will carry the i780 too. So far, it's only listed on Orange UK's website.
