While I was working on the relaunch of the site, I got an anonymous E-Mail with two photos. While I wasn't sure first about the authenticity, after comparing it with the thumbnail picture we got from CarPhoneWarehouse I'm pretty sure they are generic!

I'm proud to show the next (and more detailed) Orange C550 photos (at least I haven't seen them before):

It's close to what we've seen from T-Mobile with their SDA II/II Music but follows the nicer and rounder Orange ID. However, this SPV C5xx version will includes a joystick again - yes! :-)

What do you think?

Cheers ~ Arne

I like this new design. I'm just missing EDGE in the new phone. Do you know if i-mate will also have this model (or a cloned one) available soon?

Looks cheap and ugly.

You think?
Well, I'm not sure if it is the final material so maybe it looks "ugly" on the pictures only but way better in reality!?

I work for Orange and say this beats any SPV out todate they just keep getting better

Posted by Arne Hess on 25.04.05 - 23:33:38

Yeah, I think so! First Orange has a long (the longest wink) tradition in building Smartphones (with HTC), second I always saw Orrange as an inovator so I'm sure they will make the great SVP C500 even better with the C550. Not to mention that I'm a big fan of a joystick instead the C500 navi-pad.

If the pictures are real I'm sure the C550 will become a great device. Unfortunately I'm not living within an OC (Orange Count(r)y ). sad

I notice that the markings behind the phone matches those of your website.  What's the lowdown with that ?

That's a watermark only to indicate the source of the pictures. I've added the::unwired logo with PhotoShop. Don't expect the logo on the final Orange version... ;-)

Still no official release date or specs? I'm wondering if it will support EDGE or not (sont think it will support UMTS tough)

Posted by Arne Hess on 26.04.05 - 14:21:56

No, nothing yet, only what Gears over at revealed some time ago. However, nothing about EDGE or UMTS support (but I don't expect UMTS). However, on MoDaCo I read that it is expected for May! smile Soon we will know more!

A private source confirmed the availability of this phone in the Orange shops in 2 upcomming weeks! big_smile

it seems like it will be a cool phone but not what i'm looking for.

Posted by Me on 03.05.05 - 11:38:57

can anyone confirm if the screen is going to be 240x320? This is the same size as the pocket PC screen isn't it. What about the processing power; any upgrade?

Prefer my c500 to be honest, though is any candy bar design going to be as good looking as the ill-fated moto mpx100? It seems not.

Is the c550 coming to the US?
