  ActiveWin.com: Orange SPV M5000 Pocket PC Phone - Review
Time: 07:52 EST/12:52 GMT | News Source: ActiveWin.com | Posted By: Byron Hinson

I have posted up my review of the Microsoft Windows Mobile 5.0 based Orange SPV M5000 Pocket PC Phone. Here is a small piece from the review:

Lets more onto video calls. On the bottom right hand side of the screen we have the "Video Cam" this is a 0.3 Megapixel camera that is perfect for 3G video calls. We have run a few tests to other people on 3G phones and accounts and have only had a few bad receptions, the picture works well and you can clearly see who you are talking to (not that its a good thing every time). The M5000 is one of the first Windows Mobile Pocket PC Phone devices that supports 3G, and it supports it in the shape of WCDMA 2100 MHz. Credit here must go to orange for having good 3G reception right now, other companies like Vodaphone in my region are dire, reception quality is also excellent for plain calls and text messaging here in Cambridge too from Orange, we did however have some calls in which the volume seemed quite low, although we're unsure if this was a reception problem or a problem with the M5000. Don't let the fact that the video cameras megapixel rate isn't high, people just to conclusions that the higher the pixel value the better the camera, that isn't ever the case.

Why can't Orange make some US products?

Orange is the mobile provider. Most, if not all, of their Windows Mobile products are produced by HTC. There are a few places online that sell carrier locked and unlocked HTC products.

Mobilebee is one such vendor. Here's the HTC products they offer:

You may be able to find the same products (possibly with some carrier-specific modifications) under various carrier categories.

I'm upgrading from my XDA IIi to this phone/PDA - except from XDA (i.e. II Exec).
