SanDisk Ultra II 2Gb SD card

What can I say about the SanDisk Ultra II 2.0Gb SD card ? Well, to be honest you can't say much. That's not a bad thing either. This thing is massive - it's like the tardis. It's amazing to think that I had a hard drive in my …

Orange SPV C550 Review

  The latest in the SPV range, the C550 is pretty similar to the C500 which was released a few months ago. This time however the joystick has made a come-back, Windows Media Player 10 is on-board, there's dedicated music buttons on the front,...

Orange SPV C600 Preview

Introduction Well, here it is - a preview of the Orange SPV C600, the new Smartphone from Orange which - until now - has been pretty damned secretive. The C600 is made yet again by HTC with the code-name "HTC Tornado". HTC sit in the background a...

Orange G2 Bluetooth Headset Review (AKA BlueTrek G2)

The Orange G2 Bluetooth headset is an excellent bit of kit. Although there is little mention of it on the Orange website, it is available from Orange shops for around £40. The headset is a branded version of the BlueTrek G2, which can be obtained fr...

Orange SPV M2000 Review

I'm on holiday right now. In fact, I'm about 50 metres from the beach. It's bloomin hot and I've read through pretty much every magazine we brought. Now, not being a terrific book-reader, I'd normally spend this time drinking some Banks beer (it's a b...

MPx220 on Contract in UK

Motorola MPx220 – I've got one at last After 12 months with my mpx200 and being extremely pleased I have eagerly waited Orange in the UK to offer the mpx220 for the last 6 months. I usually get a free upgrade every 12 months because there is bound …

Boxwave Flexiskin for Orange SPV C500

The FlexiSkin from for Orange SPV C500 / Audiovox SMT 5600 is designed to stop your phone looking dented and scratched while preserving its "coolness". The problem with many cases for such a tiny phone is that they tend to hide the ...

Krusell Leather Case

The Krussell case is a very nice leather protector for your HTC Tanager based Smartphone (like the one pictured). Krussell are a very well-respected case-manufacturer and have won several awards for their cases and carrying systems. So - wha...

Ora Safe2Talk

I was very impressed with this product. I've had many "plug 'n go" kits for other mobile phones in the past and I've always ended up binning them because I'm shouting at the cigarette lighter or the speaker volume is wrong, or something else. This didn...

Car Charger (for HTC Canary / Tanager)

I feel it necessary to waffle in this review, because there isn't really much you can say about this Smartphone accessory. Is that a reflection on the product ? No - it's just that there isn't a great deal you can say about a Car Charger. I guess …

Ora Full Car Kit

Well, here it is - the first ever Full Car Kit for the Orange SPV. I managed to get one of these and install it. You'll see that I'm using it with my Tanager Smartphone, but this product has been designed with the Orange SPV in mind.Anyway, I …

LovelySync Charger & Sync Cable

This mini-sync cable is pretty much identical to the Boxwave MiniSync cabled reviewed here. It's a lightweight, slim, durable cable that extends in both directions from a centre coil, as seen below. You can see the length of it as I've placed it on...

My MPx200 Review

I've just managed to get one of these handsets to keep. I've been using it all weekend now. I think I'm converted. Hello Moto ! Hello Motorola MPx200! The hardware...I'm a child of the 80's - the 1980's.. If you are too, you'll remember a programme on...

USB Battery Extender

This device is almost identical to this other battery extender reviewed previously. There's exactly the same features - and on/off switch to allow charging and four "AA" sized batteries are required to get it working.. The big difference...

SmartPhone Comments

Over the months I've had lots of emails from people commenting on the SmartPhone and its qualities etc. I thought I'd stick a page together with these comments, so if you're thinking of getting a SmartPhone read on. It's also worth checking out the Gue...

Piel Frama High Quality Case (for HTC Tanager)

The Piel Frama is probably the Rolls Royce of phone cases. From the very moment that you see the swish box with embossed gold lettering and logo, you can tell it's going to be good. This particular case was designed for the QTek 7070 / SPV E100 (bot...

SPV E200 Review by ex-Nokia user

SPV E200… Is it really worth all the hype? My immediate reaction to that answer would have to be yes… being a loyal Nokia fan, it was a big jump going over to a different mobile, but it was an excellent choice. Being a SPV-first timer, if the …
