Orange Horizons has launched an e-commerce website in South Africa, selling telecoms-related devices and accessories. Prices at the new Orange SA store are competitive.

The new Orange South Africa shop has a wide range of products which include mobile phones, tablets, laptops, networking equipment and other gadgets and tech accessories.

According to the website their top products include the Samsung AllShare Cast Dongle, the Sony Smartwatch, and the BlackBerry Porsche Design P9981 smartphone.

To establish whether the Orange store’s products are competitively priced, MyBroadband selected five popular products and compared their prices to a few well known online retailers in South Africa.

The products are the Samsung Galaxy S3, the Samsung Galaxy Tab 2 7.0, the Kingston 128GB DataTraveler HyperX USB 3.0, Microsoft Arc Mouse Black, and a Canon Powershot SX240 HScamera.

It should be noted that only the list price on each website was taken, and the final total costs may differ because of delivery charges and other costs.
