According to this press release - published on - today the long awaited and rumored "Oragne SPV E200" aka HTC Voyager is to be announced:

Geneva, Switzerland - Friday October 10th 2003. Orange and Microsoft today unveiled the latest phone in the Orange signature range - the SPV E200 - featuring familiar Windows mobile software and designed to give customers one touch access to key services, exclusive Orange services and making full use of the Orange intelligent network. The announcement comes as Orange and Microsoft release new data on Smartphone usage.

With an integrated digital camera and Bluetooth capabilities, the SPV E200 is one of the worlds most advanced mobile phones, packed with features to make Orange customers more efficient at work and offering more fun and entertainment for play. The SPV E200, with Windows Mobile 2003 software for Smartphones, allows customers to send and receive emails on the move using Pocket Outlook, access the internet using Pocket Internet Explorer, send photo messages, download MP3's and even film and store special moments with the integrated still and video camera.

As an Orange signature phone, it also comes with exclusive Orange services such as Orange Backup. Orange Backup allows customers to store their personal and business data - such as contacts and calendar - on the Orange network and restore those details when required. That means that if a customer loses their phone, the information remains secure on the Orange network and can be restored on a new phone. There is also the Orange Update feature which lets customers update their phone with the latest software as well as download and store new applications over the air.

The SPV E200 builds on recent Orange signature phone announcements and follows the success of the SPV and SPV E100 phones, which have proved to be the most successful Orange phones in terms of non-voice revenue.

Richard Brennan, Executive Vice President of Global Brand, Marketing and Products, said: "We're aiming to continue the success we have achieved with the SPV family so far, which have proved to be the most successful phones for Orange in terms of non-voice usage. We believe this success is due to successful marriage of compelling services with easy, one-touch access to those services."

Juha Christensen, Corporate Vice President, Microsoft Mobile Devices Division, said: "This announcement with orange is evidence not only of the commitment from both companies to deliver innovative phones and services to customers but also to growing the Smartphone industry. We are particularly please that the latest research highlights a significant increase in ARPU from Windows Mobile - based smartphones and thereby demonstrates the value of our platform to both partners and customers."

The SPV E200 is due to be available from Orange during November 2003. It will be available from Orange in the UK, France, Switzerland, Denmark, the Netherlands and Belgium (Mobistar). Full pricing and further details will be available in each market closer to launch.
