Sagem MyS-7 comes to Orange France.. but not the UK

This time last week you may have been forgiven for thinking that there weren't that many models of Windows Mobile handsets out there. Just a week ago we only knew that the Orange SPV C500 was hitting a high-street near you pretty soon. The Motorola MP...

C500 Leather Pouch

I've been in PHP / MySQL hell over the past few days (it'll never catch on, I tell ya), so it's good that Tam Darcy emailed in to distract me. My spies are already telling me that there's a LOT more Orange C500 handsets about now and bigger …

E200 / C500 Skins

Nick (crafty) emailed me today with a couple of top skins for your Windows Mobile phone. Unfortunately they only work with the Orange SPV C500 and the Orange SPV E200 because they use the Orange plugin, but they're definitely worth a looksie. Click th...

It’s finally working ! HA!

Following on from this earlier story, I've finally got my arse into gear and completely fixed the CoolSmartPhone.com XML News Feed. You may remember me saying, "I'll get that fixed in a bit", way back in 2002. Well, now it is - and I've sorted it so i...

Java Java Java…

News feed fixed – I think!

Back in November 2002, when I started this site - I promised that I'd get the news feed working. However, I never did. Yes, it's taken me almost 2 years to get around to fixing this ! :) The XML feed can be viewed in an RSS Reader …

Getting that C500

There's a hunt on across the UK for the Orange SPV C500. It appears that the best place to get them at the moment is in Orange Direct Shops, which you'll find on any high street. To find your local shop and bag an Orange SPV C500, just …

Virtual Keyboard
