Our friends at MoDaCo were quick to see this. Orange UK now has their own Himalaya Pocket PC Phone Edition. Dubbed the SPV M1000, the O2 branded Himalaya is similar to the O2 XDA II and PPCW.Net i-Mate Phone Edition and since November 03 already available from Orange Denmark as as "Orange SPV 2020".
It is nice to see that more and more carriers are now carrying the Himalaya based Pocket PC Phone Edition. The SPV M1000 may slightly differ with the Orange specific applications and Java applications which apparently have been preloaded into it. Orange states that some of their services which they are offering with the SPV M1000 may not work outside of the UK.

Actually, it's called SPV M1000 in Denmark also, and has been for a couple of months now.

It's already available also in France at Orange France. Here in Italy it will be available very soon at Telecom Italia Mobile (TIM) and Vodafone IT, under the name "Qtek 2020", without SIM Lock or other annoying things! ;-)

Bye

Can anyone confirm if it has the same memory as the XDA 2 or if it has less?

if it is less then there is no point getting it on Orange. Over to O2 we go.... wink

I'm not sure if we users can be so happy about this development. Every vendor will be having their own ROM versions and we poor users will have to guess which one will really care to publish upgrades - and do this in time. De-regulation was meant to give customers more choice - it turns out giving more providers better control... It concerns me when Jacob mentions that there is something like a version for the danish market Mate, no offense... Denmark is a great country and your particular experience is hopefully positive... but if carrier will need to port upgrades onto each and individual market in every country we will wait very long...

@farnold: But that's something we see anyway with localized versions.

I mean I always have to wait to see updates or upgrades for German Pocket PCs - if these updates/upgrades are released ever. So it's already common and I don't see a real problem with it at all.

The Danish M1000 uses an English ROM, no Danish localisation at all.

Isn't it the same link as Carlo posted under [More Information]? Where is the difference?

Beware of the Orange M1000 version of "Himalaya"!!

Orange (DK and I assume UK as well) has for some reason decided *NOT* to update their ROM with critical patches and updates availble for some time now for PPC2003 - this includes faulty handling of GPRS, Battery, Key-lock, MMS and much more. Orange have stated that they do not plan an update anytime soon. Go with Qtek2020, which are much more up-to-date and timely. I wish I had.

SanDisk 512mb SD card

I have obtained an MMS .cab and installed it. MMS works perfectly on Telmore/TDC. I have not detected any real problems with GPRS,keylock or battery. After a registry change found on XDA.Developers.com, I now have more or less GPRS always on.

I think that the USD 615 I paid for the Orange M1000 is a very good price - and don't see any need for an immediate update.

All that I really miss is the Bluetooth Handsfree profile.

Regards

Michael
