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 …

The E200.. What is it ? Well, for those who don't know what a Smartphone is, it's basically a phone which is based on the Windows Mobile Operating System. This phone can play MP3's, it'll syncronise with your PC so all the contacts you have on your co...

Canary – A Faster bird than a Tanager?

A very explosive news, came to me today. Checking the manual of both HTC birds, the Canary and the Tanager, i saw what it seems to be an error, but maybe not. The new Tanager is actualy slower than it's predecessor Canary. Despite, they both use a...

SPV and E100 accessories with the E200 – not all work

I personally tested on my \SPV E200 the following:   1. Battery Extender (with 4x AA Duracell batteries) - plugs in, but does nothing.  Tested with E100 to make sure it was still OK.   2. Car Charger - plugs in, but does nothing.&n...

My first impressions of this handset are good. It's fast, the refresh on the camera is much better, the battery lasts blinkin’ ages, it’s well built, it has a completely flat screen.   Then I start using it.. and still, things are good. It’...
