Orange SPV C550



MoDaCo have some more information about the Orange SPV C550 (aka HTC Hurricane). First a disappointment: it is likely to have Windows Mobile 2003 Second Edition, and not Windows Mobile 2005. However, one interesting rumour is it'll includes 802.11b Wi-Fi. Could this be why Skype are developing their software for smartphones? It would be pretty cool to be able to dial out across VoIP when in range of a Wi-Fi network. Although this is unlikely to please operators since it will directly affect their ARPU.

The lack of Windows Mobile 2005 is a showstopper for me. However, the fact that it has a 262,000 colour display when Windows Mobile 2003 SE only supports 65k would indicate this was originally designed for Windows Mobile 2005. So, I'm going to wait since I think a ROM update will appear in the near future.
