Exclusive first – Orange SPV C550

Exclusive first   Orange SPV C550 I had an email about an hour ago from an anonymous source with this picture attached. Now, being the trained journalist I am (!), I’ve decided to post this picture without checking anything out first.

– 1.3 megapixel camera

– GPRS class 10
– 240×320 QVGA 65k (see below) TFT colour screen
– 64MB internal memory and Mini SD external memory
– USB, IrDA and Bluetooth connectivity
– Video MMS and download and playback
– Java 2.0

– Integrated SZGA and Flash

– 262K (not 64K gisplay)

We’re also hearing that it’ll appear in May 2005. There’s some rumours that it’ll have 3G capability, but there’s obviously no inward-facing camera so…
