Orange / France Télécom is trying to give a new life it its telephone booth in an Internet world. Orange is currently testing a brand new category of booth for both calling and surfing in Paris.

Orange idea is to offer a big 17” touch screen for Internet surfing on top of classic voice usage:

The result is pretty impressive and robust: I haven’t spotted any big scratch as this kind of ‘device’ is put under huge strain in public places. I’ve found an interview on the orange website in French with English subtitles. > watch the Orange-innovation.tv video

Pretty interesting when your phone is out of battery or if you are roaming.
