Orange SPV-C550 music phone arrives

Mobile phones

Orange has confirmed that the next version of its SPV smartphone – the SPV C550 will go on sale at the end of the month and will be free with some tariffs.
As we reported earlier Orange is billing the Windows Mobile platform phone as a music handset.
In the same way that Sendo took the bones of the X smartphone and morphed it into an X2 music phone so the SPV C550 will feature all the Windows Mobile staples (email, Outlook, Pocket Explorer) but will sport a quartet of dedicated music buttons. The device, which is codenamed Amadeus, is a tri-band model with a 176 x 220, 64,000-colour screen, Bluetooth support, 32MB of RAM and 64MB of ROM. It has a 1.3 mega pixel camera on board too.
Storage is via a 128MB mini SD memory card which apparently has enough space so Orange claims for around 170 tracks. Not quite sure how they worked that one out though.
