Orange today announced the launch of the SPV C600 smartphone and the SPV M3000, a wireless PDA. Both devices support high speed data access by using EDGE technology.
The SPV C600 allows customers to access their email, use their calendar and synchronise data with their desktop, as well as making calls and sending text messages in the usual way. The SPV M3000 offers customers the same ability to do business effectively while on the move, with the addition of a high quality PDA screen and a full keyboard.
Orange is the first operator in Europe to deliver a Microsoft Windows Mobile 5.0-based smartphone. It's expected that T-Mobile and O2 will be launching their equivalents before Christmas.
The SPV C600 also has a break-through high resolution colour screen (320x240 pixel colour screen), a 1.3 mega pixel camera and a 64MB internal memory. To help busy executives relax, it also features an MP3 and WAV music player and Windows Media Player 10 Mobile.
The SPV C600 will be available in France, UK, Netherlands and Switzerland from the end of October and in Romania, Belgium, Slovakia and Poland from the first week of November.
The SPV M3000 offers mobile versions of familiar applications such as Microsoft Outlook as well as Internet Explorer Mobile, plus the convenience of using the same file formats (such .doc, .xls, .ppt). Combined with 128MB internal memory and support for additional external memory, it makes the SPV M3000 a powerful mini-computer for business users on the move. In addition to fast EDGE (up to 247 kbps), the SPV M3000 also supports WiFi connectivity (802.11b) to give users broadband mobile access. It also offers a 1.3 mega pixel camera and camcorder.
