Orange delays launch of SPVx
According to The Inquirer, Orang is holding back the launch of the new SPVx, based on the Tanager reference model.

While the original model was aimed at early adopters and business users who 'synced' the SPV with their PCs, the new SPV e100 (codenamed SPVx) is intended to provide consumers with easier access to games, music and entertainment services.

It will also feature an improved colour screen for better Internet surfing and a more consumer orientated menu system. Other consumer focussed accessories will include memory cards pre-loaded with games, video clips and MP3 files plus a cable for camera attachment designed to encourage greater use of MMS/fototext.

Hence the SPV has dropped to as little as 70 online compared to its theoretical retail price of 220. According to Mobile some 40,000 out of the original 70,000 SPVs earmarked for the UK are still unsold.
