Are the differences between the two that large? Anyone know what the main differences are, and how they affect the device in actual real-world day-to-day use?
Any opinions gratefully accepted... 8)

Exactly what I'm worried about. Still, I suppose I can hedge my bets, and if it gets to mid-April and there's still not a whisper of the M500 being launched, I can just plump for the M500 instead. The other alternative is that I could abandon Orange for O2 and an XDA Neo (same device, effectively...) if they bring it out sooner. Downside of that is that Orange's overall package as a service provider far exceeds all the others in my experience.
Something I would take into consideration is the M5000 example, shown in last years 3GSM and took a further 6 months to hit the shelves.
Do you mean a WM5 update for the M500?! Every site I've read says it's not possible because of the memory limitations of the M500, so I can't see that happening.
Also Orange are "hoping" to launch a WM5 update but there are some rather large issues in regards hardware.

Exactly my point too....
For me personally the reason for WiFi was "free" internet access at home and work (I dont use any GPRS any more).
Speed isn't actually a big issue - I very quickly got used to it. There are things you can do (Reg tweaks or Overclocking) to help with that anyway.
It's subjective, I know. I'm not so bothered about the thickness of it, and the weight isn't an issue. It's mainly the width/height, and given it's only fractionally larger than my K700i, I can't see it'll be a major issue.
I cant speak for the physical feel of the size and weight of the device.
Why not order one online, try it for a week, and then send it back if you dont like it? In the UK the distance selling regs mean that you have 14 days to return something. You'd pay for nothing other than airtime (unless you use your existing SIM) and P&P
2) There are reported issues with Windows Mobile 5. Lots of KJam owners are getting fed up with thier phones restarting left right and centre and I know one Jamin owner who hard reset his phone and restored his settings from a backup and who is now suffering the same reset problem. Mobile 5 is new and likely to have loads of bugs for a while.
Hi Andy, I tried giving you a shout via the forum messaging system, not quite sure how the steup works so i thought i'd post here as well just in case...
You mentioned you were getting a new phone on t-mobile - have you managed to track down a Prophet on the network or were you talking about buying your own sim-free phone? Or did you mean you were getting the t-mobile MDA II? I may be getting myself horribly confused here... i was just wondering, as i've just received an MDA II and would much rather have the prophet if it's coming out on the network...
