SPV C550 & M500 Are Coming Soon to Orange Retail

Recommended Posts

We all know and hope that these two phones will be with us soon, and that they are up on Orange's website, but they are also shown in the brochure for Orange retail. The ad states that the SPV C550 is coming soon to Pay Monthly and PAYG, with the M500 only available on Pay Monthly (and only available to buy from Orange Business Centers).

Here's the advert:

(M500 - Mini SD? I think not!)

And here are the specs:

(More errors - M500 - No speakerphone, Orange Backup or POP3?

Yet another error (noticed by mupwangle) - apparently it's over a meter long! :?: ).

No suggestions of prices, or exactly when they'll be available.

Good spot.

Amazing how Orange can get so many of the features of their own devices wrong... :shock:

Nobody seems to have noticed the obvious error - the M500s dimensions are listed as about 6cm by 2cm by OVER A METRE!!!!

New Orange M500 - also useful as a backscratcher.

My brother told me that he thinks it's too big for a phone. :)

Maybe he has seen these specs.

I hadn't noticed that! :)

I'm glad that the picture isn't actual size - they'd need a special fold-out page to fit it in.

Why can't Orange get the info right on thier promo material? No wonder Orange staff find it hard to obtain the correct info if the material they are given is inaccurate.

I heard about that, but I'm pretty sure it was a mistake.

Can't wait for the M500. I wish Orange would decide whether this will be business only or fpr personal? One day yes, one day no!

Looks like the wait is almost over - seems like the C550 will beat the M500 into the shops by a couple of weeks though!

Think you're looking in the wrong place. It says 1108... don't see your 125mm anywhere?!
