Beside offering a way to get the Orange SPV unlocked now (see previous message), Orange is also offering a Developer SPV now which is unlocked (certificates removed), SIM unlocked and has no SIM or airtime contract.
It's available from the Orange Developer site and includes the SPV phone with 32MB Flash Rom + 16MB SDRAM, a USB Cable, an AC Adapter with EU/UK Plug, the Headset, the Microsoft Smart Phone 2002 SD Card with bonus software and the Serial Camera.
And it's available for 444 Euro plus shipping (international delivery is supported) which is a pretty good price compared to the $599 for the Microsoft Smartphone Developer Pack.
