Orange C500 review


The C500 runs Windows Mobile 2003 SE, is Java-enabled and comes with a portrait screen

Orange SPV C550 review


CoolSmartphone spent some special time with the SPV C550, that new Windows Mobile-powered Smartphone that Orange intro'd a few weeks back. As we've mentioned before, the C550 is more or less the follow-up to the C500 (whichis known as the Audiovox SMT...

Orange SPV C500


The Smartphone market has proved to be a little disappointing during 2004 so far, with very little activity. Two of those most anticipated players, the Windows-based Motorola MPx220 and the Symbian-based Sendo X have so far failed to materialise, and...

Consumer review (

well built phone which stands the test of time well.


I've had my C550 for 4 years now and have found it to be a really good phone. It's got lots of features and a decent camera on it and is very easy to connect to your PC.It's biggest problems are in its menu design which isn't well thought out. It...
