“That” flip-phone, the HTC Star Trek / iMate Smartflip / Orange SPV F600 has been approved by the FCC for use on cellular networks and there’s rumours that US network Cingular are sniffing around it too. There’s a couple of versions – one with and one without a camera but for now the manual is being kept a “confidential”, which would seem to indicate that a network has already decided to go with it. You may remember this earlier news item showing the proposed handset timeline for Cingular with this HTC flip sat right in the middle.
When you do get one of these IMEI-Check.com have confirmed that they’ll be able to unlock it for you too.
