While the community is excited about what we've heard about Windows Mobile 5.0, more and more questions appears (also I got a lot of questions by E-Mail) on the web if current devices will be upgradeable, especially after Dell's and HP's previous announcement to offer such upgrades.
Jason over at Smartphone Thoughts has posted a feedback from Orange now:
"Orange is looking forward to launching the new Windows Mobile platform across a range of attractive devices in 2005. The key benefits to customers and to Orange will be an enhanced phone experience, increased customisation possibilities, as well as improved overall performance." said Florian Seiche, Director of Devices, Orange Group
No word about the current Windows Mobile devices but about future devices only. So the expected Orange SPV C550 might be the first one with Windows Mobile 5.0? I don't know but it looks that the previous SPV's will not get an upgrade at all. :-(
