Over on CoolSmartphone, gears is reporting on a scan of the February Orange catalogue which shows the SPV C100 as being replaced by the HTC S310... the same HTC Oxygen handset, but branded HTC rather than Orange.

You know what? He's right too!

To the right is an exclusive pic of the dummy units that are now arriving in Orange stores. You'll note it's a white HTC S310, interesting as the Orange catalogue shows a black handset. Could the S310 be offered (as well as the M700) in a choice of colours?

The plot thickens!

Thanks steven for the pic!

It's also shown at about £129.99 (PAYG) I think, including £10 credit. Which I think isn't too bad at all...

The more storage space you have, the more junk you store
The new name for the Orange SPV E200 - Orange SPV3. For the Orange SPV C500 - the SPV4

Hmm.

this poses some questions...

Is this the beginning of the end of the Orange SPV brand line?
Will the HTC phone still have as much Orange branding in the software?
Because this is a lower spec to the current SPVs, is Orange using the HTC brand to seperate the two?

Is there any new services/menus that come with the unbranded HTC S310? Is Orange promoting something else?

Seems like is not just an ordinary handset and SIM... According to this article it will turn the unbranded phone into Orange Signature device and has a super SIM....
