Orange are now selling the new M$ spartphone, but I haven't a clue where. I went looking to find some pics etc, and it's not listed at Orange, or Carphone Warehouse, The Link, or Phones4u. On Orange's front page is an ad for a competition giving away 3 pairs on 7650s. Seems it's been rushed out so fast that no-one is selling them and Orange are promoting a handset that is a direct rival to the one they have exclusive liecense for.

On ORANGE Romania they will launch MMS.

Can you believe that they do not have on store the 7 series or 9 series.

About this phone, they said today that they do not know nothing :o

Is made forthemselves anyhow

It has only been released in the UK.

I'm not even sure that it is available in the US yet.

The SPV was specially made for Orange UK buy blind Bhuddist monks in Taiwan. The diagrams and schematics were drawn up in braile by a man whose only language of knowledge was German. Either I'm right or someone at Orange UK said "What about a cheap and cheerful smartphone design lads, we need a new angle."

The response he recieved was "Let's make it minging!"

The response he recieved was "Let's make it minging!"

"And crash every ten minutes"

"Oh, Oh, and whilst were at it, let make it hour glass for 45 seconds when the user opens an application"

I can just imagine that meeting :D
