A step back for HTC Smartphones but there isn't an Orange Smartphone with Wifi. Therefore no functionality's been lost from the C600...
Tornado (the reference platform) did have it, Breeze doesn't, hence yes, it's a step back?

And talk about bad timing for the C700. Right after the World Cup when your biggest selling point is mobile TV. :-/

My SP5 has been at the doctors last week to be fixed and I had to use my JasJar and I HATED it with a passion. SP5's home tomorrow

And dare I even mutter it, but the only thing i have found lacking is the same old nokia series 40 issue of calendar items not sync'ing. It still can't, and probably never will, be possible to do logical repeats on a Series 40 Nokia (that is items that repeat a certain DAY of the month, like every third thursday, as opposed to by DATE of the month, i.e. every 23rd).
Were it not for this, I could get by with it as my main phone, so easy is everything else on it.
Now move on to, the N80... that's a GENUINE proposition...
'Cos that CAN do full logical repeats (though maybe still not creatable on the phone, but they can be sync'ed over from PC).
It has a truly beautiful screen - I was playing with one for real last night at the Bryan Adams concert (where I was backstage doing emergency radio comms to Stadium Control Room), with a resolution of 415x372 or similar. The three Megapixel camera, whilst not S.E. standard, is still a billion billion miles beyond ANY Windows based device camera- when will they EVER get that right, and stop playing catch up - the NEW Windows devices coming out, will have a 2MP camera, just when the key players are now jumping to 3.2 - this truly disappoints me with windows).
And it plays .wma files too now.
As well as 802.11g flavour wi-fi...
Quad Band GSM too...
uPnp with Media streaming inbuilt - how cool...
Document viewers etc...
Email attachment viewing...
And full any file format sending, even if not viewable on the phone...
Now... yes we KNOW its not a WINDOWS device...
But when can we finally start talking about other devices as being truly Smart smartphones...
Surely thats got to be it...?
Me wants one!

If you're a power PIM/mail user (as I am), then only Windows Mobile cuts it.

Horrid thing. Cumbersome, slow, infuriating OS.

It was horrible (I had one too to have a play with Orange TV), the N80 is miles better, but still not enough to make me switch camps...

The day you switch camps Paul is the day we send a retrieval team to bring you back and undo the brain washing you've obviously come under...

Released in July, eh? Anybody care for a little gentleman's wager that we won't be seeing C700s until we see Xmas decorations in the shop windows?

I honestly can't see the big deal about a capital letter or not - they both perform smart tasks, they both have installable apps (usually by the same companies) - they both rock.
That's a 'smartphone' not a 'Smartphone' actually...
