Come on folks - you might still like it, but tell me truthfully they haven't gone and made it less nice that the iMate Jam...???

Why oh why Orange???

<{POST_SNAPBACK}>

Probably to make it look less like an iPod and more like a business tool - just like their conservative makeover of the SP3.

I agree, i think the orange version has a certain retro cool about it.

i just jumped ship and got the mda compact on tmobile, if i'd known orange werent that far behind i might have hung around for a bit.

You're not alone as coolcatshaft says. I like it... always found the speaker slit on the Jam a bit strange...

The SP3 and the C500 are different how? Aren't they identical?

The Orange C500 is the only variant of the HTC Tyhoon that comes in black. Everyone else's is silver.

OK, it was the _first_ to come in black - the "retro" look of which was the point of much discussion at the time.

I've been considering the Treo 650 or the Nokia 6680 but then I read about the M500. Neither are available on orange in the uk yet. Treo 650 I understand has been delayed but orange told me that the Nokia would be available at the end of May - the person I spoke to hadn't heard of the M500.

I prefer the look of the M500 - not keen on the ipod look the main reason I bought the U2 version

Another scoop at MoDaCo, cheers to MB for the heads up!

Presenting the first official Orange picture of the forthcoming SPV M500, based on the HTC Magician, aka iMate Jam / MDA Compact / O2 XDA 2 Mini.

Despite the minor facelift, specs remain identical to other Magician variants.

Our sources tell us that the M500 is expected to ship as soon as early March across the Orange territories... as always... watch this space for more info as we get it ;)

Been reading this post for over 3 months now so I emailed orange U.K. and they have never heard of the m500. Shame.
