heard a lot of rumors about an Orange 3G SPV but so far nobody was able to
prove. However as expected by insiders - it's the same device we also know as
Orange SPV 3G and therefore based on HTC's Universal reference design:
Orange's new SPV 3G integrates 2.5G, 3G and Wi-Fi and genuinely places the
office in your pocket, with functionality and power similar to a desktop PC.
The device, which is approximately 100 cm2 is like a mini laptop that fits into
a pocket â€“ and includes a 520 Mhz Intel processor and the Windows Mobile
The SPV 3G is also a tri-band terminal, operating on GSM 900, 1800 and 1900
networks, allowing Orange customers to use the device seamlessly in the US,
Europe and Asia.
SMS, MMS and e-mails can be typed using the full QWERTY keyboard. The 640 x 480 pixel VGA color touch screen is ideal to display text,
images and internet pages. Additional functions include two integrated video and
still cameras, and loudspeakers. Once open, the screen can be turned round to
turn the mini-laptop into a PDA with a touch-screen.
Like other Pocket PCs, the 3G SPV includes full Office functionality (E-Mail, Word, Excel, PowerPoint,
Outlook), integrated video and music players and equipped with USB and Bluetooth
interfaces for synchronization of data with a PC.
