The new SPV? Not quite

Mobile phones

Ok Orange network users, fancy a new smartphone?

French company Sagem is the latest company to offer a mobile that uses microsoft’s Windows Mobile for smartphones software.

Due in the UK in the summer on an as yet unspecified network (it is available via Orange in parts of Europe so it doesn’t take a huge leap to work out who is stocking it in the UK) the Sagem MY-S7’s big USP is that it is slightly smaller and more pocketable than Orange’s existing smartphone the SPV. Weirdly enough both are made by Taiwanese company Mitac.

Features-wise the two are pretty much the same with the Sagem boasting a very similar 65k colour display, a VGA still camera with a digital zoom, MPEG 4 video capture and playback and Java. Of course there’s the usual microsoft applications such as Outlook, Pocket Explorer and Windows Media.

The phone also has 32Mb storage built-in which can be expanded via its SD/MMC card slot.
