Mobile communications firm Orange is planning to offer UK businesses the latest device from HTC, known as Shift, which includes a seven-inch touch screen mobile computer.

The Shift is smaller and lighter than a laptop, with mobile data connectivity.

It has a seven-inch touch screen that "slides and tilts" to the perfect viewing angle, said Orange. It also has a full Qwerty keyboard.

Users can switch between Microsoft Windows Mobile and Microsoft Windows Vista, said Orange.

The device supports 3G/3G+ and Wi-Fi. The Shift also comes pre-loaded with Microsoft Office in Vista mode, enabling users to download, view and edit Microsoft Word, Microsoft Excel and Microsoft PowerPoint documents.

It comes with a 30GB hard-drive, large enough for most mobile offices.
