Well, my constant pestering of Orange has revlealed 'July'. Since there is no actual date listed this apparently means that it won't be out until some time in August, eg the Nokia 7610 had a release date of 'late June' and will be out 12 July.

I guess we are all hoping that the C500 addresses all our various issues, a bit like XP after ME. I live in hope.

Yep, I got a few replies of 'July' as well. Thing is I am starting a new job August 2nd for which I'll need a new contract and I don't wanna buy some existing phone only for the C500 to be released 10 days later!

Aren't thse phones available in other guises from somewhere else? My usual place, Expansys doesn't even know about it.

I currently have an Imate Smartphone2, but that will have to go back to my employer when I leave! aaargh!

Do you have that on good authority or is it best guess?

He works in Orange retail, so it's probably "on good authority" :D

That's not to say Orange won't move the goalposts :roll:

Quality testing?

What is "Quality testing?"

Not like the Big O to let a few bugs stand in the way of more cash! :wink:

Anyway, I thought that was our job!

cheers simon,

these dates can change weekly, if a new bug is found or if a shipment fail quality testing (eg. 6230)

I can second that, i work in orange retail as well. Were told early august.

But as stated the Nokia 6230 was released (about 12 a store) then O found there was an icon bug. Held up more deliverys until it was sorted. This entail delayed the next batch for another 4 weeks!
