My new Smartphone


I got my new Smartphone this week, and am so happy! The SPV C500 is an upgrade my SPV E200 and is working like a dream.

    Nice phone, but I don’t suppose there’s anything like that in the states?

  3. Finally got the picture working? 🙂

    I assume you haven’t tried GAPI games yet? Shame there’s a nasty bug there.

    And Chris, yes, iMate are bringing it out in the US mid September.

    What I want to (desperately) know is whether or not you can install third party (non Java) software on it? And whether or not it supports apps written in the Compact .NET framework? If it does I might just get one of these when or if they are made available over here in Sweden…

  5. Doesn’t support 850mhz. Won’t get fantastic reception in the States.
