has posted up our
of the brand new Microsoft based smartphone - the Orange SPV C500. This is the
latest smartphone that has just been released in the UK and runs Windows Mobile
2003 Second Edition software. The review is based on the silver version of the phone.
Here is a piece from the review:
Being a long time Pocket PC user I found Microsoft's
entry into the Smartphone business more interesting than most. Pocket PC sales have
not been as good as they could be, and I have to admit, I've started to find mine
more and more useless with the influx of new mobile phones that can do just about
everything I want from a PDA. The Orange C500 Windows Powered smartphone is my 2nd
Microsoft based phone I have had from Orange, the first one I started off with was
the rather large in size E200 model shown below left. The major problem with previous
Windows Based smartphones has been battery time and the size of the unit, well things
are about to change with the introduction of the new C500 phone from Orange.
