Yesterday I met an Orange Insider and we discussed several topics about decertifying the SPV via OTA as well as when and where we will see the first Orange SPVx.
Here what he was able to tell me as far as he knew. But please keep in mind that Orange is a huge company and maybe not everything is known by everyone - but the good news are that this guy isn't working on the helpline, so he should know more... ;-)
Q: "Will the Orange Developer website, to decertify the SPV over the air, removed anytime or will it be locked?"
A: "My understanding is it's for Developers only but no checks are done so if a user says he's a developer then he gets to have an unlocked phone"
Q: "When will we see the 'long awaiting' SPVx released?"
A: "SPVx is sometime due April not sure which countries will be first. Well, Switzerland and Denmark will probably be first"
Well, as much as I trust this source I can't guarantee it 100 % that we will not see any changes on the Developers website and also the availability of the SPVx in Switzerland and Denmark first might be a rumor, but even might be true. At least it doesn't takes to long to April and we will see what happens. :-) Not a price nor an information about the included "multimedia" application was given.
