One of our members (apologies to that member, I can't find the original post!) posted the picture below of the test device currently doing the rounds within Orange.
As expected, Orange's official stance is 'We do not comment on unannounced products', but here's what people are saying so far...
- Orange version of the Magician to launch on Orange, positive testing to date indicates this is extremely likely
- Orange testing slightly tweaked exterior, as they have frequently done in the past (M1000 was a slightly different design to the XDA II), downside of this is incompatibility with cases etc.
- Device will slot in as an Orange Signature device into the current SPV Mxxxx line, which only contains the M2000 at present, but will expand.
The device will of course contain the usual Orange goodies from Action Engine, Orange Backup and Orange Update, but beyond that, we don't know any more at the present time.
We are also hearing reports that this device is being considered by O2 and T-Mobile in the UK, so it looks like the race is on to be first to market with this great little device... :shock:
