Orange SPV C550 and M500 due in May
The upgrade to the Orange SPV C500 is due in May according to The Carphone Warehouse. The SPV C550 is based on HTC's Amadeus II platform (which is an upgrade of T-Mobile SDA Music). It features a QVGA (240x320) screen, joystick and built-in 1.3 MegaPixel camera.
Early rumours suggested it would support Windows Mobile 2005, but this is not due for several months. A release in May would suggest that this is not the case. (Update: Orange Netherlands lists this as supporting Windows Mobile 2003.)
The Orange SPV M500 is also due out in the UK soon. This is an upgrade of the HTC Magician platform (as used by T-Mobile MDA Compact).
