SPV C600

The SPV C600 is the latest 2.5G Orange SPV to join our line up. In terms of looks and functionality the C600 is more like the C500 and C500 than the recent M1500 and M5000.

Like the C550, the C600 has 64MB of internal memory and is compatible with mini-SD memory cards; the C600 comes bundled with a 128MB mini-SD card, so users can start downloading and transferring music without having to buy any more kit. The integrated Windows Media Player will play WAV, MP3, AMR, WMC and AAC file types, which means that users should always be able to transfer their music to the C600, whatever format they have it in.

The integrated camera offers a 4X zoom and supports Photo and Video Messaging, connectivity options are well catered for with Bluetooth, Infrared and USB and a USB cable is supplied in the box.

Internet Explorer provides access not just to Orange World, but also to the Internet, plus the C600 supports Java games and applications. Users can send and receive email from their C600 and exchange Instant Messages with the MSN Messenger application.
