As reported before, today at the World Handset Forum in Amsterdam, Orange has announced the next own Smartphone called SPV C500, which is based on HTC's Typhoon reference design.

Claiming the C500 to be the world's smallest Smartphone, the pan-European mobile network operator introduced the handset as part of its new line-up of Orange Signature phones, which all offer quick access to operator services.

Despite its minute size, the C500 offers advanced functionality:

The SPV C500 weighs in at a mere 100 grams and measures a compact 10.8 x 4.6 x 1. 6 cm, yet offers a 16-bit color display and several advanced connectivity options including Infrared, USB, Bluetooth and a miniSD Card expansion slot. A whopping 64 MB of RAM is included, although it is not known how much of this will be available to users.
As a triple band mobile phone, it features GSM 900/1800/1900 MHz (only) and GPRS. In addition the C500 will offer the Second Edition version of Microsoft's Windows Mobile 2003 for Smartphone platform, announced in March this year. This will provide a native MMS client, as well as Home Screen soft key customization, improvements to voice dialing and more.

As with all Orange Signature phones, the SPV C500 offers an Orange experience containing several exclusive applications and services. A new home screen is present, as is the over-the-air Orange Backup solution, the Packet Video player and Orange Update, which allows customers to trial and download new applications such as ringtones, tube maps and games.

According to Orange, the C500 is to be launched in seven European countries - UK, France, Switzerland, Denmark, Netherlands, Poland, and Slovakia - starting later this summer. Pricing details will be available upon launch.

More information and an additional hi-res picture of the Orange SPV C500 is available at infoSync World.

[1] Not to mention that the miniSD slot is under the batter which means that even if there is Smartphone support for miniSD Wi-Fi cards (if we will ever see them), there will be no way to use them with the C500.

First off I think goin miniSD is not right! we don't need another flash format!(i'm sure they could have fit a regualr sdio slot somewhere in the unit)  second placing it under the battery is not practical at all. Not very excited with this model...
